Weather In the teens all day! Oh yeah, and snow and ice on the ground. Sun in the afternoon and pretty calm.

The UW was closed today but I had work to do so decided that I would ride in since I had an appointment downtown in the afternoon and walking seven miles seemed like a bit of a chore.

Riding in the snow is fun! It's been ages since I have done any of this so the novelty outweighed the inconvenience. I took my mountain bike (for the knobby tires) and since it's currently a single speed I rode really slowly.

On the way in my hands about dropped off they were so cold. :( I think it was because my body was not warmed up and I was just coasting down hills. I did hit the trails above Interlaken and that was cool – great traction and a blast to ride though untouched snow.

Riding to my appointment and then home was fine – traction was not an issue if you were careful. And my hands stayed much warmer.
