I'll tell ya what's nice; resurrecting the notion of a winter bicycle commute. After years of riding through the depths of the Canadian winter, i was forced to curtail my commute a couple of years ago, mostly because of the distance to my place of work. A 20km commute by bike in the dead of winter in northwestern Ontario is pretty ridiculous. Recently however i've been fortuitous enough to start working at a location within a reasonable commuting distance (10km) and i can now pedal to and from work again. It's a nice way to start and end the day. Try it sometime.
