I will chime in. My 3-mile route today, on the fresh snow was a lot of fun - especially grade 10% hill leading to the house.

What are you doing shooting people?

EDMONTON - A man on a bicycle fled into Mill Creek Ravine Park after shooting a motorist dead Tuesday night, police said.

Several shots were fired at the corner of 68th Avenue and 93rd Street around 7:40 p.m.

When officers arrived they found a man dead in the driver's seat of a black Chrysler 300 parked on 93rd Street.

Ive heard of that place so I googled it to see more pix and found that. You were on a bike so I thought it would get a laugh. HA! Cool pics.

bac - Edmonton is one of the greatest cities in North America for real winter cycling (the kind that involves snow) as it's typically dry and cold and our average temps are usually not that brutal.

It's so nice to have a forum where all the winter riding whackos can congregate and where folks don't think you're nuts.

On that note: I'll post a few pics from yesterday morning's ride. I posted these on the commuters forum but they belong here.

I started out at dawn with a sunrise and 15 deg. F.









A shot of the crappy trail conditions.



My winter ride on the trail I commute to work on.
