Been riding since 97 after I quit smoking. I am an "Ice Biker" and have no idea why, perhaps its cause I'm a displaced Swede hmmmm maybe. I have rode in -36c temps which isn't as bad as it may seem. It's not fun, but can be done with the right clothing and equipment. I have 15 years of winter riding and after all this time my wife still thinks I'm nuts to ride year round.

Picture is 27th March 07, Rural Manitoba. It may not look it, but I am warm.

2023 goals:
1. ride at least 4 quarters ;
2. ride at least 100 days;
3. ride more than 1200 km;
4. ride 30 commutes;
5. ride more than 100:00 hours;
