I rode home in pouring rain this evening. Along the way, I rode up and down several steep hills. I do this kind of thing pretty regularly, and I have to say that I actually kind of like it. Bicycling isn't very hard or dangerous, but I enjoy the fact that it's somewhat more arduous than driving a car or using public transit. I don't mind rain, and I positively love to crank up steep hills.
On the other hand, it snowed here a few weeks ago, and I simply stopped riding as long as the ground was white... because I was afraid.
So, my questions are these:
1. What sorts of adversities do you enjoy, or at least tolerate, on a bike?
2. Under what conditions will you not ride a bike?
