this was my first winter riding. even though we are still in winter i feel as if the worst is over. i must say that you guys and girls who get out there day in and day out to ride not just to work but for exercise and to keep up to form are truly remarkable.
i had planned to ride my normal 20-40 mile rides this winter but nothing like that happened. the cold won and i stuck to commuting. i think we all deserve to pat ourselves on the back now and then. at the end of this cold season raise a glass and toast yourself and others like you who help you along the way.
thanks to all of you for posting clothing recommendations, tips for dealing with salt, what to do when your gears freeze up, etc etc. i know i would have been walking to work on certain days if it wasnt for this forum. so thanks!
