I.e. before going out, if it's cold out, no matter how cold, it will not change my route nor the time it takes me to get where I'm going. Not so with wet snow. I also tried to explain I'm not talking about powder that is melting, but the packed stuff people walked on after a big snow fall: the stuff that when it's frozen rock solid, even though it is bumpy, makes for a fast ride.

That was the gist of my message.

Oh yeah, and riding in the cold is not easy, but relativelly, not much of a deterrant from going to work instead of working at home.
