It's kind of slow right now between Winter and the Holidays. It's hard to get excited about cycling, unless, of course, there is something under the tree. You have to check the weather forecast to see what kind of layering you will need. Looking like a Nomad is against my Grant Peterson, "Just Ride", philosophy. Winter is here and not much you can do about it. The good news is the Winter solstice is over and the days are getting longer.
