We had a surprise 70F day yesterday. Back to just above freezing highs most of next week. Took the studded tires off my mtb yesterday since most of the ice is gone. Bought some cheap tires since 26"...

Personally I think you would be safer riding with lower exertion in the cold (though I don't). I say low exertion rather than low speed because on my fat bike I can be riding hard and not going very...

If the forecast holds we could see the biggest snow dump in 7 years on Sunday, 30+ cm. It will be too much to break trail through. But it will give me a chance to go snowshoeing as there hasn't been...

I think you have to look at not just cadence but wattage. When out with very slow riders I have to lower my cadence to around 70 or less (or handicap myself with a less efficient bike). High...

Heavy equipment like that can utterly destroy an MUP. They generally weren't excavated deep enough, don't have as much road base or layers of asphalt as a regular road. Contractors doing work here...

You don't have to setup separate profiles to use sensors like on the old Garmin units. Just add all your sensors and the Garmin will connect to whatever ones are active. If you go into the Sensors...

We had a fantastic weekend, but a bit of a winter relapse this week. Convenient time for a few rest days with -10C temperatures and winds gusting to 60 km/h. Despite the temperature today the sun...

Today we had the interesting situation where the sun was intense enough to melt the snow on unsalted roads even with the temperature several degrees below freezing. Water that hits the bike freezes...

Currently stuck in annoying weather mode this week. Light snow / rain every evening has ensured the roads have been constantly wet all week. I still got some decent rides in despite the mess, but...

Last year I studded an entire 3.8" Gnarwhal with salvaged outer row studs from my worn out set of Marathon Winter tires, the stud tool handle could be bigger to spread the force over a larger area. ...

Should end up with a little over 14,000 km. People that take every opportunity to tell you they don't use Strava are kind of like those atheists that never shut up about it.

We might get 5cm tomorrow, I'd like to get back to the fat bike. There was rain that transitioned into snow Sunday evening here, so we have a very thin layer of snow / ice on the MUP. The snow is...

We have a warm day tomorrow, but it will be ruined by 40 gusting to 60 km/h wind. Unpredictable last minute changes in the forecast make me leery of sending out invitations for group rides days in...

We had a few warm days in a row which left crusty ice in the alleys and shaded side streets this morning. That stuff is plenty of fun on a studded fat bike, the studs have plenty to grab onto so I...

Seems like winter is here, but will it stay. Cold enough for the 5-6 cm of snow we got to not melt. I didn't get out today because 40 km/h wind plus active snow makes for a miserable ride, what...

The roads are getting mostly dry after last week's heat. Alleys still have a bunch of ice on the north side where they stay in shade all day. Sunday / Monday was much cooler, there was light snow...
