Baby, It's Cold Outside

The Winter riding season is upon us.  The short sleeved jerseys are packed away.  The shorts will likey not see the light of day until sometiime in April.  For many, this is a time for hibernation.  But, your club is not only Five Boroughs - it's also Four Seasons.  So...why ride when there is an Arctic chill in the air?  For me, the answer is obvious - I am a cyclist.  It is something that I enjoy doing during the other seasons, and if dressed properly, enjoy it during the Winter.  There is a little of the "man versus elements" thing going on inside my brain.
