I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
Snow overnight, the rain. It made for heavy snow to shovel. I was about a hour clearing the drive and walkway. By 4:00 the temp was 9, at 7:30 it was 8.4 and by 8:30 it was down to 4.
A strong wind from the west gusting at times to 50+ km/h
