First ride of the New Year

Amanda and I rolled out to our friend Darrin's for a New Years get together.

It's a good 6-7Km to his house.

It was -33°C (with a windchill that made if feel closer to -40°C...).

I probably wasn't quite so well dressed as I could have been. I can't remember the last time I felt so cold. Oi!

Yikes!! I get fed up at 0 or -1 here!

Serious question, how do you cope with the snow/ice - special tyres????

There are studded tires you can get. I've used them some years, not other years. Usually I just use something more like a knobby mountain bike or cyclocross tire and stay away from road slicks...
