Winter sucks!

I hate it, 3 more inches of snow in Michigan and highs in the teens next week. I JUST WANT TO RIDE....its killing me. Spring is 8 weeks away, might as well be 8 months. So jealous of those who live down south...

Bahh, it aint so bad... No bugs, no rain, and we're not sweating. Snow is beautiful, and it fills up the potholes.

Wintery weather makes you appreciate summer that much more... Then we get better summers with 16 hours of daylight till past 10 pm.

Some have nice winters, but aren't your summers hellishly hot?

Our planet's axis is tilted a lot, giving us very variable seasons.... Weather is getting more extreme.

At least it's in the 30s-40s here in NJ. We had some brutal days way down in the single digits (Fahrenheit single digits...brrrrrr). No riding for me till Spring. Needs to be above 50 for me, LOL. We occasionally get a warm day, last week it was up in the 50-60 range, but the roads are such a mess from the salt and potholes that I don't bother.

I feel like the OP. We got 3" more yesterday and they say more's on the way.

On the off note I was on my way to the store the other day, it was in the low 30, when I saw some poor fool on a scooter. TOO much icy slop and snow for me, I just hope he made it home safe and sound.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Oh, and I forgot to mention that it's pothole season in NJ. Gets really bad. There were cars with broken axles and other issues littering the interstates recently. Hitting one of those craters on a bike would be very, very bad!

Sunny and in the 50s today in Denver.

Snow from the last storm is almost completely gone. Threw my gear on and went for a spirited 20 mile ride...to work. Oh well.

Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer, but any ride needs to done early so I can watch the Broncos vs. Patriots at 1PM.

You guys are so lucky to ride year round or close to year round! We are still under a blanket of snow but last few days have been really quite warm. When Zeus and Hera (our two German Shepherds) lay in the sun and their coats get nice and warm, that makes me hopeful that spring is around the corner! We have yet to get through pothole season too! I may have to go for a spirited ride on a Polaris today!

68 in Austin. Going out for a ride in the am when the drunks are sleeping it off and the church goers are all off the road as well. I'd be riding today, but the GF doesn't ride and we are heading out for a hike in the canyons today instead.
