    The four seasons of commuting

    No, not the hotel chain, actual four seasons. Something Canadians might know.

    I've been looking at this thread for a while and noticed that people actually introduce themselves and considered myself rude for not having done so earlier. All my life I biked everywhere, literally everywhere - until I moved to another country and even though I got a bike there as well, it wasn't the same and somehow I drifted off biking.

    Now, back in Finland, the country where I started from. Commuting a 50 kilometer (that's 31 miles for you metrically challenged ones) jaunt 5 days a week plus other road biking activities. Some could say I have been reborn and refound my love for cycling and it is awesome.

    This year will be the first year where I'll commute (or die trying) all year around, which means a temperature range of -30 to +30 celsius (-22 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit) and that'll be a massive challenge, but hey, life's good when you get to set challenges for yourself

    I also write a bike magazine (which is a fancy way to say blog) with my compadres, and if you find yourself bored, I'd love seeing you check it out and say hello!

    Keep on riding!

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
