Loving my winter training

Making the commitment to riding outside throughout the winter was the best decision I could have made last fall. I bought some new winter clothing, but best of all I added studded tires to my Fat and 29 Plus bikes. It was just way to hard for me the last few years to stay motivated riding indoors whether on the rollers or the trainer during winter. This winter I've been out playing on the snow/ice trails and if it isn't raining I'm outside riding. Just having fun out in the woods !

Nice! I am constantly impressed by you folks in cold climes who ride in the winter while I won’t ride if it’s below 40 F. Thanks for sharing the vid, I just got back from a ride and it’s 85 F here.

Was able to still fit the camera with the fender, and was surprised to see anyone with skies out there. The snow conditions weren't great for any kind of cross country skiing.
