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.

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.

Why yes, I do happen to like Purple.
What was your first clue?

They say laughter is the best medicine. Unless you are laughing ALL the time, then you probably need some REAL medicine, you freak.

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
