OK, so maybe I'm not as hardcore as most, but this winter is killing me. I started really riding (50+ miles a trip) last spring when I got my new Bianchi. Now, I haven't ridden in a month. could handle the cold, but the wind chill goes right through me....and between all the salt and sand they dump on the roads here, I might as well use my mountain bike. How do some of you riders in the North ride on roads filled with sand?
