Winter cycling has been super fun, beautiful, and equally challenging this year. Having a year under my belt makes me feel less anxious and more prepared. I am attune to my limits, when to take public transportation, how my bike reacts to the various surfaces of winter, etc. I am trying to take winter cycling one day at a time and not be too hard on myself when I choose public transportation over weathering the elements. I am also trying to enjoy the magic of winter, the air, the soft light, and the sparkle.
