Aye but the good folks of Edmonton can go indoor surfing at the Mall during the cold weather!!As the folks in Edmonton Canada like to say, there is no bad weather, only bad clothing choices. Actually, there are bad tire choices too. As a person who always disliked and even feared cold weather, there is something very satisfying about finding a way to be outside when it is really cold, perhaps windy, and being warm and comfortable. Roads dry, ride my Brompton. Roads icy, ride my Surly Steamroller with studded tires. Too snowy for that, take a mountain bike with 2 inch tires and a lot more studs. If the roads aren't passable with that sometimes good riding can be had one bike paths and singletrack. Because cold air is denser and because the extra clothing is an aero drag a shorter winter ride will keep you as fit as a longer summer ride. Sometimes it seems, though, that putting on and off all the stuff to wear takes as long as a ride.
well I'll look for the bloke with the stripe up his back - out today in the pouring rain and road muck - guards - the place I was going to wouldn't have appreciated muck on their chairs -may have been court martialled - arrived back home feeling great. And clean.Several hundred / thousand miles, you?
Spent a winter on the trainer. Hated it. I'd rather be on the roadWinter cycling is pointless when you can use a choice of about 12 good apps on the smart trainer.
Maybe it just makes people feel hard. The risk of crashing or been run over really isn’t worth it is it??
Not much public transport running gone midnight, and on the quieter roads round these parts. Or before 06:00, on a weekday. Weekends everyone starts later and finishes earlier. Going by the timetables.Some of us use the bike as you would use your car, for transport
Granted, we could use public transport in winter.
