I've been lucky in that the Cape's weather is a bit milder in winter and we usually don't get quite as much snow as on the mainland. I've been able to ride year 'round, just not as much or as far as I can in summer. If I recall correctly, I think that I was only unable to ride in March this year. I bundle up and use heated gloves. This year I think I'll get a heated jacket liner or vest and some wind proof riding pants to be more comfortable. Heated grips are nice too, Iím told, but I wonít be investing in those any time soon.
If you ride in winter, enjoy the strange looks you get from cagers at stop lights. Also be aware that theyíre even less likely to see you when youíre riding around, since they donít expect it. Be extra careful.
Let's hope that Farmersí Almanac isnít accurate, Rev, and we donít get that snow. I have a 300+ ft. long driveway and I donít enjoy shoveling it.
