Here’s another way to make cycling an indoor activity: wear your best sweater to the curling rink. I’m quite into curling this year–especially because it’s a winter sport that manages to avoid strong headwinds. I’ve completely given up on trying to cycle outside this winter…I admit, I have been beaten down by the polar vortex. In fact, the last time I ventured outside on my bike was February 4th when Cindy invited WWR participants to come in from the cold and watch cycling–indoors.
We watched cyclocross, we ate chips, we sampled Joanne’s homemade salsa but left her gluten-free beer alone, and Cindy taught me a lot about European geography. Warm good times. Many thanks to Cheryl, Cindy, BikeJo and anyone else who has been keeping the WWR alive on the streets of Altona, even as Manitoba experiences our 2nd coldest winter in 120 years.
No doubt those keeners will be riding outdoors again this Tuesday night (Feb.25th) — meet at HQ at 8 p.m. … right Cheryl?
Also–don’t forget to check the ABES blog for info about their upcoming Winter Bike Race: AWBR

bike or ski? Whatever it is we should meet at hq at 8:00. What do you think?
I don’t know if you believe that a rodent can predict the weather, but this local groundhog says we’re in for an early spring. Sounds good! Till then, I guess we just keep on riding in the cold.
Who’s up for a ride tonight?
