Inspired by Mike Kazimer's Spinning Circles
blog last week about Seasons Change, I started thinking about the forthcoming winter. The nights draw in and a huge chunk of the Northern Hemisphere gets cold and wet, and tends to stay like that for much longer than I would like. Late evenings at the dirt jumps are out, as well as procrastinating all day in the knowledge that you can still pound the pedals for a few hours after dinner before the night falls.
There seem to be a few different camps when it comes to winter ways:
Some people revel in the darkness as they don the winter warmers and lights, just getting on with the grind as normal after work and at the weekends, maybe even switching to a fat bike in colder climates.
Others take the time to get off the bike and indulge in some different activities like indoor climbing, hitting the gym, yoga or a blast on the moto's at the weekend to change things up. Also popular with the two-wheeled crowd is changing the contact points to sharp edge instead of blunt rubber and heading out into the snow on ski's or snowboards.
Some eccentrics do weird things like actually spending time with loved ones, going to the cinema, repainting the lounge and hitting Ikea when the crowds die down for the fabled 8-10pm empty aisle sessions.
But as we plunge into winter, half of the globe is heading into summer. Maybe you're thinking about migrating, or already live there?
What will you do this winter?
