    Rode tonight in 8 degree f cold

    I like to ride all year round, but it has been hard. I can ride in the snow and I can ride in extreme cold, but a lot of snow and 0 degree f weather together makes it really hard. I ride an 1978 Schwinn Spitfire 5 all winter.

    So it has been extremely cold with snow for the last 2 weeks. I havent rode for about 5 days. I just wanted to get out tonight, I only went 5 miles I usuallly go 20. But it was work out cause I was riding sometime in snow it takes a lot more effort.

    Anyway it was fun, but I can wait till it is about 25 degrees and dry lol

    I'm also looking forward to 25f and dry, maybe next month.

    Where are you located?
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
