Just wondering what some of you guys do when Winter comes along


I try to get out on the bike as much as I can. A new additional to the fleet might help that. Do some snowshoeing... thinking some long hikes in the cold. That is about it...

Snowboarding
Playing in the snow with my daughters. (they are off from school 'till the new year) and we have a ton of snow down here right now.

This what I do in the winter for fun. I plan to continue to have fun and rest from cycling for the next couple of weeks.

As for training, I just got a new TOL Blackburn trainer so I intend on using that jam a bunch when the roads are not rideable.
Mid January I start base training on the road for the upcoming season. Then off the AZ for a week in Feb.

Tele & alpine ski regularly, snowboard occasionally when there are freshies & skate ski quite a bit, often by headlamp at night. Skate skiing is wicked fast and a killer workout, lots of fun.

When ski conditions get bad the biking is often good, and having a Pugsley makes even marginal conditions enjoyable. I've been getting out on snowshoes quite a bit in the last few years, either scoping new trails or packing key singletrack sections when it's warm to make the biking good when it refreezes. I played hockey for the last 4 or 5 years but my biceps injury has put that on hold for a while.

Winter offers so many options that if you live in the north and complain about winter you really need to try something else. Even sledding is a total speed rush. A few of my friends have built and maintained some killer backyard 'luge' runs that are a blast. Sometimes they are scary when conditions get icy.

Ultimate frisbee 2 or 3 times a week year round. We'll play in practically any weather. I'll do some rock Climbing at the Rock Gym a couple times a week which is pretty fun. If the snow thins out of enough I'll throw the studs on and spin a bit with the XC bike. Taking the kids to free swim and the rock gym is cool until they start fighting, then it sucks.
