Buy good gear and, as long as the roads aren't iced or slushed, you can.

As long as it's above freeze point, I ride.

I ride all year long. Whether I want to, or not.

My new gear arrived today. If I can figure a good way to keep my feet warm, I will be covered.

Got a 40 degree ride in yesterday. Short, but sweet.

Where you located Mitchell?

The 4 or 5 bikes that are always at the local business college downtown were there two mornings ago when it was FOURTEEN degrees!!! I said they were out of their mind. No way.

14 ain't so bad. Anything on the plus side of zero as long as there is no ice, snow or salt. My commute is 25 miles each way at mostly 55-65 mph
