Winter of your discontent
As I've heard everyone (including me) complain constantly about this winter; the worst winter in 30 years, is it ever going to stop snowing, etc. I realized while I was riding last night (outside) it isn't really that bad. I've only put in 6 hours on an indoor trainer and not because of laziness. I have rode almost a thousand miles since the first snow in December outside, gotten in 2 gravel metrics, almost a century, and rode outside almost everyday this year! I have missed 3 days commuting do to wussing out on the ice storms. Overall this winter has been great for riding even in the cold and the snow and the wind. So all I can say is stop complaining on facebook/blogger grab a friend or 2 or 10, a bike, some beers, maybe studded tires, and hit the road/trail system and see if you still can complain about the best winter in years. Soon enough it will be spring and you'll be able to join in the complaining about the rain and the heat.
