Yip, we do have snow. And we are getting more of it as I am writing this. Which means that the biking to work was a bit harder than usual. Some might say this is the beginning of a sufferfest. But I disagree. The cold and snow doesn’t make a lot of difference from biking in the summer with 20 degrees. Proper clothing will take care of it. The only bad situation I can imagine is rain in the morning with a temperature just above zero. Rain on the way home is no problem, since I am getting home anyway. But this, that I just call fun.
And yes, I make it a rule that I have to a certain stretch of forest every day I bike to work. Why use a mountain-bike otherwise ?
