from last night's ride: cold, dark, snow, ice, gravel, wind, solo, sketchy, sketchy, sketchy. i'm not normally one to complain about the weather. i enjoy the winter, the snow and for the most part the cold is bearable. but 4 days of rain and slop followed by a temperature drop accompanied by snow and high winds has made riding outdoors damn near impossible especially since my lazy ass hasn't put studded tires on. more snow or more sun...either cover the ice or melt it but right now its just treacherous.
