Snow, what is this snow you speak of? In Arizona this is riding season. I ride all 12 months and get the weird looks when it's 112 degrees in July and I am blasting around the neighborhood. cool

Re: Who rides everyday, snow or no?

-14 this morning, -29 with wind chill. Can't remember what the concrete looks like! So I ride in the basement, trying some 80's flatland, only to fail and bail into the couch.

Re: Who rides everyday, snow or no?

I try to ride a bike everyday, but man with the snow and below freezing this year its been hard. I took some major slips and spills the other day on my bike cause the driveways and roads are giant ice slicks here.

Been eyeing up either a Bikes direct or Minnesota Fatbike the past few months. I hope to have a 4" + Fatty by next winter. Until then I gotta suffer with 2.5"s

Re: Who rides everyday, snow or no?

I ride to work pretty much every day in snow/rain whatever.  You wimped out Gary, it's more fun when you use rim brakes....it's like the lottery to see if you'll be able to stop LOL! tongue

Re: Who rides everyday, snow or no?

Here in Ohio our temp this morning was 0 with a windchill of -10.  Warmed up to a balmy 14 degrees but with 7 inches of snow and a half inch of ice on top of that, the Mongoose stays warm and cozy in my bedroom. big_smile  Have not ridden since probably early November.

Re: Who rides everyday, snow or no?

these videos are awesome.  I am also sick of the winter.  We have now had 36 days this year of low temps below zero. this morning -25 windchill and high temp of 15.  This is the first year I have ever thought of moving back to texas.  Only three more months of winter left

I Live in South Dakota and bikes are a no go this time of year. Even for the most dedicated. In essence, Winters are Brutal here.

Re: Who rides everyday, snow or no?

I ride to work everyday. This winter has been cold and we are getting snow pretty regularly.
Here is my winter rider outside the shop after unlocking it from the pipe.  It got covered with snow while I was working:

I rode to the post office to mail some stuff and saw this: yikes

I snapped a picture of my reaction to the sign. Did I mention it is cold here. lol
