For those of you in Canada who don't ice-bike, and have your trusty machine under wraps for the winter--when do you plan to have it back out on the road?....Right now-I am hoping the weather will cooperate and I will begin another pleasant riding season, by March 17.

Well I am in Vancouver so the bike is on the road through the Winter, but I am hoping to have my major spring overhaul and take the fenders off early April. :)

my bike is inside with me where it's warm. she's sad because we're not riding right now, i can tell.... she has a pouty face when i look at her every day. lol

i just started cycling a bit this past fall. then the winter hit and it was too freakin cold to go out. i have my martial arts that i do as well so i figured it wasn't a big deal. i

in the end of january/beginning of february the weather was soooooo nice here that i was riding daily again. then we hit a cold snap and BLAMO! no riding for me. i don't have a hat and gloves which doesn't help. if i layer up, i'm doing it with regular clothes and i find it restricts movement on my bike.

i'm frustrated right now!:mad:

every day that passes now i feel bothered by the fact that i'm not riding. i was thinking about joining a gym so i can cycle indoors until the weather gets at least decent again. but money is an issue, i just graduated university last year and i'm just starting my career. *sigh* ($ issue is also why i havent bought gloves, hat, etc...) i'm surviving but i have to be careful.

anyways, my bike is in the house where it is warm. i look at it with its pretty new bike computer that i havent been able to use yet and pray every day that it warms up a little bit. (pleasepleaseplease) so i can get back on my bike and get moving again.
