Well, apparently I was going write something here. Thats ok, I will. I recently dusted off my old Huffy 10-speed and decided to try and use it again. I came across some info on the web about riding in the winter that interested me and thought I'd try the idea out. It worked for about a week. That was a month ago. I haven't tried it since. Too busy, too put off by the cold and snow to venture out again in the elements. I guess I'm not that much of an enthusiast to go bicycling in winter on a regular basis, guess I'll have to work on that.
Otherwise, bicycling is a great idea, very practical and good for you too. I would advise anyone to try it for recreation. However it's not as practical as having a car in today's society. To be really practical would take a big readjustment.
