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?
