just wondering, or more like trying find some motivation to go ride really lol. i kinda just moved and back where i was, it never got colder than 25 celsius (77 F). and now here i am in the midwest in "winter", its been way too cold and too much snow since Jan up until this week. its gonna be around 0 to 4 celsius (30 to 40 F) for the next few days with a bit if snow left on the ground. would you guys bike 5 miles to the local park for a session?

You're never too old to have fun.

I usually don't ride outside if it is under about 10 degrees F.

But I bundle up.

Or ride indoors.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

If it's above 32 i'll usually ride. When you start getting the -5 wind chills thats when i call it quits and just have a garage session.

Same with me. Wind's a bitch. Except for in the summer, then it's nice.

Where do you live in the UK? Where I live it's warmer than most of the US and it's too hot to ride more often than it's too cold to ride. I do live right on the south coast though. The main problem here is the rain. It's rained every day for over a month the moment where I am.

I can do anything really, i have had a session at zero degrees on a main road. haha Idc usually. I dont stay out for too long though, never longer than an hour if it is lower than 20 degrees. Snow usually stops me if it is on the roads and such. This is all in Fahrenheit

Yah....you guys aren't Canadian

I used to ride my bike (Not bmx just cruise) when I was a couple years younger in.... a foot of snow. I love my bike. I slipped around but it was fun drifting and falling into the big snow piles.

This year in winter , I rode in -12 degree Celcius weather. An undershirt , 2 Tshirts and a hoodie. Your fingers freeze up and your ears harden , it really wasn't fun. It's the wind that kills you , I think it was about -16 at one point here in Vancouver. PLus with the ice , salt , crazy dumbass drivers , and pedadestrians. It was crazy.
