    Your least favourite weather conditions...

    Cold wind. I don't mind rain or snow, but I can't stand riding with the wind in my face, blowing my hair around, slowing me down, giving me ear aches, etc.

    What do you kidz hate?

    There's been 50+ mph gusts here all day today. I haven't gotten on my bike once today and it blows.

    I hate it when it's overcast. I only ride in the sun.

    the only days that make me consider not going to work are 33-40 degrees with a steady rain.

    no matter what your gear you are soaked to the bone, and with the windchill its below freezing.

    ive been warmer when there was a windchill of -15 than in that ****.

    sleet/hail are pretty harsh to ride in, but thats kind of obvious. Rocks in the face nonstop is not favourable.

    although i found the extreme heat on Mercury somewhat unbearable, the atmospheric storms on Saturn made it nearly impossible to remain at a constant speed.

    Snow. Goodbye bike lanes, hello more impatient and reckless than usual drivers, and, eventually, hello skating rink.

    Seriously why do people drive even more like *******s when the weather turns? It's like, yeah, 10 feet of visibility, black ice everywhere, I'm going to pick TODAY to start acting all 2fast2furious.

    Because they want to feel like their gratuitous purchase of an SUV was somewhat justified.

    definitely wind. it rains here in the northwest all the time so i've gotten used to it. snow just becomes peaceful and fun. but a strong headwind when you are already tired just sucks

    Also, slush is hell. I can't count the number of times I've seen people just DROP while on their bikes for seemingly no reason in slushy conditions. You get into a groove cut by a car's tire and any attempt to escape results in pain.

    I don't mind snow/ice at all, wind is annoying but not bad, cold I can deal with, but man, I mother****ing hate the rain. For about 3 years in college I took raindays any time it was wet when I'd need to leave for class.

    i got stuck in a torrential downpour one day, with flash flooding all over. that totally blew. it's hard to get home when your cranks keep getting submerged in huge road-lakes.

    cold wind and cold rain are definitly the worst.
    i think cold is like a ten times multiplier to any already crappy weather condition.
