Was (and is predicted to remain) in the low to mid 70's here today. No special attire or lubricants required. Send video of your winter sports. I was once "allergic" to being cold (really triggered head to toe hives).

Glad you enjoy the cold, ha. Me, t-shirt and shorts all year. I enjoy that!

Cheers,

Gus

actually sometimes they will freeze so that you can't pedal.... it freewheels in both directions :o

I had a friend growing up that was allergic to cold, so I have heard of it.

Living here in Maine if one does not enjoy the cold.. you would go nuts.

Here is a video on last Thursday ride.

It really does not show our speed... much of it is slow motion, and some he is skating with us.. so going our speed.
