I'm not sure where to post, but this seems appropriate.
I just started commuting 3 miles to work on September 6th when school started (I drive a school bus), and during the day I've been poking around these forums. Somehow I ended up at the Let's Go Ride a Bike site, and I must say it looks wonderful. I have no fashion sense, but those girls look so happy and colorful and they get to ride their bikes with a bunch of friends just having a good time.
Does my new home have anything like that? A simple get-together to go eat cupcakes, or have a picnic?
I realize it's getting chillier and winter is coming, and some of that is more springtime/summer activity, but I love my bike and I'm hoping to keep going with it through my first winter.
I lived a few years when younger in Maryland and played in snow there, but I'm sort of nervous about driving in it, not to mention possibly biking. I don't think my clothing selection is adequate... Any information or tips and advice about winter here would help too.
