    Let it snow!

    Well, we finally got snow today A whopping 5 cm
    As usual lots of motoring primates ( ) refused to adapt their driving behaviour to the conditions and ended up in the ditch (I saw about 10 or so in about an hour). Of course, I got caught totally off guard by it and had to bike home a short ways with slick tires but I didn't fall on my a$$ Anyone else have a perverse liking for winter? Anyone?

    I have a perverse liking for winter, but then, I have a perverse liking for temperatures in the low 20s (celcius)!

    Yeh!

    There are many aspects of winter to enjoy.

    Couple of days ago was one of those clear sharp frost covered winter days , when everything seemed so still and calm.
    A low sun cast purple shadows over the distant hills, only winter can add this perspective to the countryside.

    I stayed out and rode much further than i had planned , as i was reveling in the conditions so much.
    After the initial shock of the coldness on first setting out , i was soon feeling toasty warm with my exertions.

    Yes winter riding can have its compensations, returning home I felt on cloud nine after the ride.

    I just wish today was similar weather to do it all over again .

    I like riding in the winter because many of the drivers are "cocooning" at home rather than bombing around like they do summer evenings. The roads are quieter.
