    Is anyone in St. Louis riding riding in this weather?

    Are any of you THAT "hard core"? Once this precipitation stops.. I kinda want to go romp through the snow.

    I rode Topeka last night in the dark, and commuted today. It was cold, but I over dressed. I was a pile of sweat by the time I was done.

    Well the snow just made its way up to Chicago, so I might be able to test out the snow bike tomorrow.

    Snowbike... like with skis on it? I really want to try one of those. We just dont get enough snow down here where I would be able to use it more than 2-3 times a year probably.
