    A little poem for you...

    This just kind of popped into my head as I was riding home from the grocery store tonight. Enjoy!

    ODE TO WINTER CYCLING

    Winter doesn't care
    If cars throw frosty spray.
    Winter doesn't care
    If gutters seem to prey.

    Winter doesn't care
    If three point sevens are plush.
    Winter doesn't care
    When you're plowing through the mush.

    Winter doesn't care
    If you have that other donut.
    You're gonna burn it off
    Go on eat it, so what?

    Winter doesn't care
    If you like to sense your nose.
    Winter doesn't care
    Through your helmet ice wind blows.

    Winter doesn't care
    That steel keeps on corrodin'.
    Winter doesn't care
    'cause salt keeps ice erodin'.

    Winter doesn't care
    How studly you might be.
    Winter doesn't care
    About low mercury.

    So layer up
    In neoprene.
    Make some tracks
    Through fresh snow scenes.

    Never mind
    The slack-jawed stare.
    "You're really gonna ride
    When it's so bad out there?!"

    I thought you would have one stanza like about how people think you are a nut job riding in the winter.

    Anyway... nice
