No, I only have a road bike and thus avoid the roads when it's below 35 and/or there's ice on the roads.

Chilly start this morning, but what a beautiful start to the day. As I rode past the ponds I got to see a Great Egret and a Blue Heron doing some fishing. I'm willing to bet they are better at it than I am.

Wow, a 46 mile round trip commute! I think I would still commute that distance, but I'm not sure. I am looking forward to next winter. My cycling shorts/jerseys are 4X-5X in size. Finding winter wear for a cyclist my size is a real challenge. This should be easier next winter with the weight loss.

I'm in MA and this is a mild winter. Been mountain biking most of the winter, no road rides. I have to say my new Bicycle Line jacket has made a big difference. Between 20 and 50 degrees I can get away with the jacket and one dri fit fleece line shirt under it. Previously, I would need to have 3 or 4 layers on to stay warm. So the clothes make the ride! Once it gets a little warmer I'll be commuting back and forth to work (46 miles). It's just a little tough right now with the temps down in the low 30s in the morning...

The only way out is through...

I have to take my hat off to you "Heroes/Heroines" who have done impressive miles in some pretty tough weather. While I've logged many miles, so far this year, I don't think that would have been possible if I had to face the weather that you "CRAZIES" have had to face. Hang tough and make it happen.

TOOTHFUL99-I live in Hampton, VA. I have to admit, this has been a mild winter. Last winter I had 937 mi total. I have ear muffs that fit into my helmet and a balaclava for the really cold days. I used them quite a bit last year. I have only had to use them 3-4 times this year.

TOOTHFUL99- I live in Central PA, right outside Harrisburg. We've been pretty lucky this winter with good weather. Last winter at this time I think I only had 450 mi.

KZSPIN-Sounds like you have done well this winter, as well. My longest has been a 50 mi with the shortest being a 7.5 the day after a 50. Most of my riding is during my commute with longer rides coming on the weekends. I am so looking forward to spring, though.

Love the Surly. I won't win any sprints with it, but I'll ride with a smile everyday.

FATMANRIDING....awesome mileage for two months!
I've had a good winter too, though not as many as you have. I'm almost to 900 now. My shortest ride so far has been 26 mi, longest was 54 mi. These winter months I avg 35-40 mi rides, but last winter it was much colder and the rides were shorter, usually 20-25 miles.

I like your Surly! Heavy but it can go.....

I don't mind arm and leg warmers, and a jacket but couldn't bundle up much more than that. I agree it takes too much of the enjoyment out of that. But I can ride in the upper 30's that way, so unless it is just too wet/windy we do. That allows us to ride some all winter here in Alabama.

I live in Hampton, VA. The winters here aren't really that bad. This year has be even more mild. About 75% of my winter miles have come from my commute. When the morning temps drop below freezing, I put my Nutcase ear muffs into my helmet. I have only had to do that three times this year.

I usually ride outdoors in the winter here in Alaska, (mountain bike equipped with studded tires only), but this winter we have had 91 inches of snow which has make the mountain bike trails too deep and soft for me... snowshoeing or cross country skiing has been much better.
Lots of my younger friends own really fat tire bikes, Surlys or Merlin 907s, and they have been able to ride.

I don’t ride too much in the winter. I’m more of a mountain biker than a roadie and the trails are not in good shape for riding this time of year. This winter has been mild but that just keeps the trails wet. Winter riding also requires a whole other set of gear that I don’t have. The frustrating thing is that every spring is like starting over again.

I just got back to my house after leading a group ride this morning. It was sunny and warm! Well, for us here at least, upper 30s and I think it might have hit 40 during the ride. I think I might have been one layer overdressed, it's so hard when it flucuates like it has been. Anyway, my lobster gloves got way too hot not even 10 mi into the ride. I had brought along a lighter pair of full finger winter gloves and switched them out, opened my jacket and had to pull my balaclava well under my chin.If I were smart (ha!) I would have brought along my headband and just taken off the balaclava and put the headband on, but.......

I love winter riding when there is bright sun and it glistens off the snow! It was melting fast but quite a bit still there. Riding now makes it so much easier (and funny actually) when spring comes along and all your fair weathered friends start riding again and complain about how cold it is in mid March at 50 deg!!! emoticon

My Dad ride all year long as even rode in the snow once in Lake Tahoe. Someone at the gym called him crazy for riding in the winter, but I think it makes him stronger.

I do not ride in the winter, but run rain or shine.

I live in North Texas is it rarely gets too cold to ride. Personally, I don't cycle below 20F but a lot of cyclists from farther North call me a wimp. With the right clothes winter rides can be fun. Certainly lots more fun than riding indoors on a trainer or ergometer.

I agree, cold and sunny is one thing, but cold and cloudy/rainy just makes it mentally too tough to go ride. I'm lucky to live where I do and enjoy a riding season that rarely, if ever, closes. I'm fairly tolerant of cold to begin with, so that helps too. I will admit that after my first chilly ride I made a bee-line to the store for some shoe covers! While the rest of me was okay, my toes were painfully cold.

Today I have a short day at work and am going for a ride after lunch. It's 63 today...let's hear it for global warming! Haha.

I am in Maryland. I am a bit particular about cold weather riding. I will and have run in subzero degree weather BUT I don't ride in the cold. Honestly, I have never tried riding in cold. I have ridden in cool weather and did not particular care for it. I feel like I warm up on a run but only get colder on the bike and that was cool weather.

To get me prepared for spring, I do spin class once a week and a group bike training class once a week. The bike training class is with my personal bike on a trainer.
That will have to do. If I get a day of nice weather AND I am off that day, then I will take to the street.

Lovey

2013 Goals:
- lose 50lbs
-stay consistent in my workouts
-strengthen my recently broken ankle

2012 Accomplishments:
-cosistent training after healing from a stress fracture in my foot
-completed a 10 miler, 10K and a half marathon
-sorry my year ended in Maym 2 weeks after my half marathon when I crash on my bike shattering my ankle. I had surgery and ortho put in 8 screws and a plate.

Although we have had some warmer spikes here in the Southern Tier of Upstate New York, unfortunately these days have coincided with rain or schedule conflicts which just haven't allowed me to get out at ALL this winter.

I'll admit though, I am a bit particular about cold weather riding. 40 is my lower limit and at those temps I need sunshine. No slop & glop on the road. I just find the bundling up for colder weather takes too much out of the fun of cycling for me.

I am ready with my Light & Motion Vis 360 ( www.bikelights.com/vis360.html ) to combat the dark for resuming my cycling work commutes when the weather allows!

I'm in South Carolina and we've also had our share of crazy temperature swings. It'll be 65 one day and 40 the next. It's hard to get a handle on it. Today certainly doesn't feel like January, that's for sure. We've had some rain too, but not a ton. My biggest problem has been the time change and lack of daylight after work. I don't mind the cold, but the dark is a bit trickier to ride in.

Living in Tennessee, I'm lucky enough to ride year round. This year, we've had to deal with a lot of rain, which really limits riding. Even so, I still have over 200 miles logged so far in January! That's 200 more than I would have had when I lived in Wisconsin!!

...and then in the middle of everything, you realize you're alive right now, and the time to live is right now!

I live in Central PA, which usually averages 20-30 deg daytime temps for Jan & Feb. But this winter it has been all over the map in terms of temps. One day we'll have highs in the upper 40s and low 50s, two days later nothing above 20! Then a snowstorm or freezing rain, then sun and upper 40s.I tell you, it's very frustrating, I would just prefer a steady 20-30 avg winter temp to get used to for two months instead of this!

This has been my first winter as a cyclist. I've read all about indoor training during the winter months, but this has turned out to be a rather mild winter here in the Southeast, and there have only been a handful of days when it simply too cold to ride outdoors.

I realize many of you don't live in my region, but I was wondering if anyone else had found this winter unusually warm and have been able to keep on riding outdoors all season long? I'm not saying it's comfortable by any means, but with the right layers it's been bearable. Just curious.
