I just found the website Icebike and I am reminded that others bike through worse winters than I do. I think I like the “Why” page the best of all. In any event, I don’t ride much on the ice, but a lot in the cold and a lot in the rain and after so many years of doing it, I don’t really mind. I do wish I could keep the bike cleaner with less effort and I am pondering setting up a bike stand outside near a hose to wash off my rims to save them, otherwise I enjoy being out there and find it only takes me a little longer to dress and dry off than during the year. Outdoors and winter, great fun!
