Ok, so that was my first ride in some kind of snow. It's wasn't the best thing ever (imagine having your face, hands and front of your legs doused with water barely above the freezing point, then hanging out in the wind outside), but it wasn't the worst thing ever either. Icing snow accumulating in my glasses and my brakes having less and less effect (the pad themselves weren't gripping, the tires seemed all right, surprisingly) was probably the worst, but I guess that's more a factor of the precipitation. My gloves are not nearly resistant enough to wind and water, I'll have to see to that.

And I still have to go to the bike shop before the end of the month for a free tune up.

It's not like I would have done any different! I'm trying to push my limits of biking a little bit, and to learn how it is, I've got to try it out at least once. I don't think Montreal has got any weather that can kill me (I wouldn't do a Taiwanese typhoon!)... ;-)
