Pics of the weather over here.

Other than a studed tire up front, i dont think i need anything else.

I fell (sliped), lost traction up front.

The rear is controlable, for now.

And the bike covered with todays snow. (all phone pics, i dont carry a cam around)

What a chilling reminder (no pun intended) of what some of us will be facing in a month or so...

I actually feel a bit guilty calling what we have 'winter' when i see pics like that!
I have been cycle commuting for 7 years and have only had to ride in snow a handful of times. So rarely, in fact, that i find it exciting! Sad, i know.

i love that, even in a place where there must be snow for a good part of the year, people still clobber each other with snowballs.

Definitely.lol

there was this freak accident while i was taking the pics, this kid bent down to pick up some snow to counter everyone else's fire, and some short little kid ran in to him and with his head fractured the guys nose! there was blood in the white snow and all the kids were disgusted. Snow is funz.

ill get a few pics and vids once we have time to go down ice with ghetto plastic "sleds"
