Wow Joe! After all these years of hate'n your guts and especially after becoming a victim of yours last june. You write something that doesn't boil my blood. I like to ride in the winter if there is less or no snow. This fifty five year old body won't bounce the way it used to. So I slide around on my skinny skis and fall into the fluffy snow when possible. You and your little band of brothers write about the athletic endeavors of celebrated others, yet don't seem to understand the concept of personal fitness and what is required to maintain it. Or for that matter, the joy of living lightly upon this earth. Maybe this hometown St.Paul, former Press Dispatch paperboy can see things differently.

Only suicidal psychopaths would dare ride a bicycle in winter's deep freeze! No less than one would try to beat a train at a railroad crossing, even when the train is less than 5 seconds away and barrelling towards you at 60 miles per hour. Don't you know, people!? Your SWEAT saturates winter clothes quickly! Even dressed in layers, those layers only provide brief temporary protection from the cold, until your sweat saturates them from the inside out, reducing and eventually eliminating their insulating capabilities, and leaving you totally exposed to the deep freeze and certain hypothermia, as your sweat then acts as a conductor, pulling heat out and pulling the cold in.
Additionally to that, ice patches, when run over on only two wheels, will send you immediately cartwheeling straight into the ground, which in the middle of a deep freeze, is commonly as hard as solid cast iron! It is also of my understanding that metal-studded bicycle tires are illegal in the United States of America.
