Greg here, ...just thought I'd get at ya with some encouragement.
So... winter is happening again this year. I hear lots of people are bummed about it. Why be sad at something that you can't change? Embrace it, because it's here. Focus on the positive aspects of winter, not the negatives.
Community Spokes is staying open for the winter. We support winter cyclists, few in number as they are, and try to promote and encourage winter cycling. It's a very viable mode of transportation in the winter, and you benefit from all the same things that you would in the summer: healthy, inexpensive, quicker than the bus, environmentally sustainable. Come by and say hello. Also, stay tuned for our winter cycling workshops: Hubs, and DIY Fenders.
