Too hot for you in Manitoba?

I'd love to visit Yukon but I don't think I'd like to live there.

You were out that day!

My coworkers think I'm a little off centre. Good for you.
My limit is -30. I really don't know how to dress after that and also, how does bike handle it.

Stay upright

Winnipeg, Canada

I am from Birds Hill area. I ride a recumbent trike mostly north of Wpg and Birds Hill Park. I also collect vintage and antique bikes.

YO YO YO!!! I'll be riding the Pembina bike route, I'll be at the Forks tonight. I might also go out Poratge to the Perimeter and back down Roblin, down Wellington cres. Then home via Stafford/Pembina. If I'm late I'll just head out Portage, over the bridge into Assinaboine Park, then Stafford/Pembina home.

See you all out there. I'm the guy in the red jersey.

Anyone ever cycled Winnipeg to St. Ambroise Beach Provincial Park? Looks like a nice short/long ride, about 80km one way.

Certainly not from here, but will be working in Brandon 2-3 weeks per month until November. Looking for a source for a used bike for that time frame. OR, I may just by a cheapy and sell or donate when I leave. Any suggestions out there. I will be flying in/out of Winnipeg, so I could look there for a source as well.

I'm living in Steinbach at the moment (not from there), and make frequent jaunts out to Sandilands. Someone was kind enough to create some fun-as-hell single-track out in the ecological reserve.
