    How long are your typical winter outings?

    Some of us are riding for fun, some commuting and some for other reasons. We give reference to what we wear and how are bikes are equipped, and then we comment on our comfort level? But how long do you ride? How long is your TYPICAL escapade into the winter wonderland?

    QUALIFICATIONS: Ride must be below 35 F and at no point can you go indoors. Going indoors, only for a few seconds, resets the clock.

    12 miles and 40 minutes each way to work when the roads are dry on my CX bike, 50 - 55 minutes each way on the hybrid with studded tires depending on snow/wind conditions.

    3 to 6 hours typical. Sometimes more. It takes so long to get dressed any less seems not worth the trouble.

    My club takes 50 mile rides during the winter. Most of the time it is above 35 degrees but sometimes we start at 25 degrees and it gets to 35 by the end of the ride. This is on Long Island, NY
