    I have a goal: to ride in snow someday.
    I love these pics from determined Riders; must Ride.
    Please take a pic and post here.

    Hookworm's aren't the best snow tires, but they work.

    This, from a couple of weeks back, was the first significant snow we've had in south Oxfordshire for about 3 years.
    3 inches deep, that was enough to close schools and cause total traffic chaos.
    If you want a good workout @tripple3, I thoroughly recommend it, it's hard work cycling in the snow! 2DD84730-F5CA-4735-8E89-8542E401088D.jpg

    I've built 'Ice bikes' for many years. I built this one out of a 58 Columbia frame in January 2016. Look in the thread on what bike did you ride today for pictures over the last two winters.
    Got it out last weekend for a ride and got a pic by the driveway. Here it is after more snow today. We're under a Winter Storm Warning until Friday morning. I'll be home tomorrow so I'll try to get some action pictures. IMG_20171230_183415.jpg IMG_20180103_160102.jpg

    You are welcome to come out and ride the beaches instead; it's fun.

    Got the bike out about 5 feet before I froze.
