Anyone else prefer riding in winter to in summer?
I do, especially if it's dry (not that a force 10 gale a bit of driving rain and sleet puts me off) . The amateurs (cough) aren't out clogging up the bike paths and roads, I don' t want to keep stopping to try and develope my cyclist's tan lines, the nods you get from the other (masochist) cyclists are respectful "he's one of us" nods. However, I think the main reason is that my fantasy of being the youthful Bernard Hinault with his hands freezing to his handlebars seems a step closer. Should I be talking to someone about this?
