Are you a seasonal or all year round rider?
I'm going to winterize my bikes this weekend. As far as I'm concerned, it's over for another year. In SW BC, or PNW USA, once the weather changes and the systems start blowing in from the ocean, the game changes completely. Except for a few brave (or is it stubborn?) souls, most of us in these parts consider the riding season to be roughly mid-April to mid-October.
I think riding in the rain sucks, and riding in cold rain sucks even worse. I'll do it if I get stuck in it on a tour, but I don't confuse it with having fun. I don't even have words for riding in below freezing weather.
What about the rest of you? If you do ride year round in climates that actually have four seasons, I'm curious why you want to.
