Matt, I understand completely. It is like a completely different world to ride in. Interesting contrast in sights, sounds and sensations. The landscapes light and dark tones. Sounds deadened by and the ride cushioned by the soft snow. And then there are the questions from cage drivers wondering how you do it. Seems people find you more approachable in the wintery conditions.




I tried to ride in the winter 3-4 years ago, but it felt dangerous due to ice and slipping. Fast forward: 2 weeks ago my ancient mini van was rear ended and is now at the collision shop. I have a job approx 1.5 miles from home. Instead of walking I tried a bike that I had picked from a neighbors trash pile for donation to the local community bike co-op. It's actually a pretty nice Schwinn with mountain tires on. Wow! No real slipping with those fat tires. I tried my own ride today, a little more skill needed as the tires are road. I may just keep riding for good now, it was wonderful to be back outside rolling along.
