I rolled into work yesterday and my boss asked me why I wasn't driving my car... I reminded him (again) that I sold it in May.
He went on to say that when he was a kid they parked their bikes in the fall and then asked me where I lived...I pointed north and told him thirteen kilometers.
His reply... "f**k !"
(It was -17 C / 1 F yesterday)
The rest of the folks I work with, save for a few, thinks I am loopy to be riding in the winter and my ex things it's insane cause people are supposed to be driving when it snows and it's cold.
I am getting a little weary of the people who keep asking me when I am going to stop riding as they have already heard the answer which is, "when I'm dead"
On the other hand...my 10 year old daughter told me she thought it was very cool that I am still riding and that I was her role model for riding my bike, saving the environment, and for just being a good dad.
So who else is surrounded by folks who want to commit you for riding in the winter ?
