You got only half an inch? We got closer to 5. Bummer.

You can have it. And my road tires can slide away from me with 1/2 inch as easily as with 5. Oh, looks like we get our 5 to 12 on Saturday - a system that may slide south of you for a change. BUT the days are getting longer and "winter's almost over".

I took advantage of an early work day yesterday by riding down the Hudson River Greenway to the Freedom Tower. 43 miles in slightly sub freezing weather and sunny skies. There were relatively few cyclists and runners out considering this is NYC so it made for a pleasant, contemplative ride. The headwind was pretty nasty off the Hudson on the ride home northbound but one has to take advantage of the clear paths and roads here while they last pre "Snowmaggedon"!

It would be a pleasure. Any time you feel like coming up let me know. It looks like cycling will be suspended for a lot of us here on the east coast for at least a few days. Be safe everyone.

21 miles at 21 degrees on the OT fattie. Several of those miles were more or less breaking trail through our 6 inches of settled snow. Here's my standard view of Pig's Eye lake along the Mississippi.

'twas 19 F - 21F here today. I did my 100km (60mi) loop that i often ride in the summer. The scenery is a fair bit different because the sight lines are so much better. Interesting differences though. If it cools down some i'll have to wear something other than my wool socks and open mesh KEEN hiking shoes. my hands were sewating in my cloth wind RESISTANT (NOT windproof) mittens. I could feel a slight breeze getting into them which was good because otherwise my hands would have been far too hot. I have a thin pair of gloves that i wear inside those mittens when it gets really cold.

Cheers

I did maybe 1.5 miles today during the blizzard, just for fun. They plowed the Hudson River Greenway. I estimate I got there an hour later, because the radio said the snow is falling at 3 inches per hour.

Studded tires help.

People are walking in the middles of streets, as vehicles are not supposed to be out. A guy carrying a food delivery gave me a thumbs up. I suspect he normally delivers by bike.

That looks like fun. You are better equipped than I for such adventures. How are tires like that for running longer distances on pavement? Buzzy?

I'm just learning this stuff. I've only ridden the tires on dry pavement a half mile. They're really freaking loud. I didn't notice they felt slow, but I bet they are. If I ride them to work, I'll have to allocate extra time.

Right around 40 miles of riding today. Nice day with temps around 30. I purchased some swix "windstopper" ski pants on clearance yesterday and today was one of those "where have you been all my life" moments. Beats the heck out of the multiple layers of lycra that I'd been wearing. Long rides in the 20's are now pretty much possible if the roads cooperate.

Sorry for the NDS photo, but I was going that way...

109 km with a buddy visiting from Maine. The high might have reached 70 degrees. I rode with two Terramar base layers under a Canari short sleeve jersey, and was comfortable all day.

I think it's great that the County offers an area for me to stop and take a 'natural'.



Seems like our wetness is more persistent than some winters, so the fendered bike has been getting all the miles. I had forgotten the pleasures of riding just one bike, it becomes an extension of your hands and feet.

First time out on a bike since Nov 12th. Health is finally at a good place and the roads are clear for the first time in the past 6 weeks or more. Been a long, cold winter for us. Definitely have some conditioning to work on.

Wow, another great crop of pics from VC, sco, and MDL. Those places sure look inviting!

I finally road my commute again after waiting 2 weeks for the roads to clear. It was great!

Speaking of being away from, or near, whatever, a computer...

I rode my commute again today. Half of the return was in snow! It was great! Haven't managed to do much recreational riding lately, and not all that much commuting. This weekend looks promising though.
