Winter is here and we couldn't be happier. Who are we kidding? We dread the official start of the season. Even though things
When the wind is high and the snow is blowing, riding a bicycle seems like an exercise in danger. It takes dedication to look out on a blustery day and say, "It's a great day for a bike ride!" In Canada, we often abandon our bikes once the first snow falls, but with a little planning, it's possible to ride right through winter.
Every year, it's the same cycle. Maybe this year will be different, we think as the snow gently wafts down around us. Maybe it won't get so cold. Maybe the driveway will shovel itself and we all won't get low-grade colds that get passed around the office. Maybe this year will be different. Obviously, we're kidding ourselves.
