|Geocaching on Sunday, no snow!|
|Snow on my bike! Had to walk her home today.|
Compounding the problems, my back V-Brake didn't grip on back wheel properly and my chain links froze up! Seriously, does anyone else have a frozen chain link problem when it's very cold outside? I ended up walking the bike home. That's not too bad for me as I'm only a 20 min walk away from home! How do people cope with riding in the winter? Is it just because of the bitterly cold wind and snowstorm that make things cease up? Does having the chain enclosed prevent the chain links from freezing? This is my second chain/cassette on bike and I still have the frozen links problem like I did last winter. I will be walking to work for a bit now, till it's more rideable outside. I am hoping January, like last year, but I've heard the Winter will be worse this year, whereas Winter last year was almost non-existent.
Regarding Geocaching, I'm going to disable my hidden geocache for the Winter now. I thought it would be good till December, but if there's snow in town, there's tons more in the country! I am going to get a friend who is working out that to fetch it for me this weekend. I got some geocaching done this weekend so I could drop off 3 trackables that I had.
