Too cold?

I'm not too bothered about temperature and will usually be happy to ride even when it quite cold.  Its the wet I tend to avoid as I really don't like riding in it.

well

i suppose an advantage of riding through the winter is that it's felt glorious this week. Took the very long route home from work this evening

or the cold, but I ride most days, all year round and I'm lucky enough to have really good winter clothing, which helps a lot.

I really don't like icy roads though. Too unpredictable, and with no winter bike this year I've been quite anxious about my shiny, new baby.

Another rat bike is top of my shopping list for next winter.

Ice

no. Snow maybe. Cold yes but rain and cold really gets to my 27 year old joints and hurts.


Right now it's getting a bit too warm in the jacket with liner in, but a bit too cold to take it out.
