I’m your father…

Speaking of spring being on its way I was a bit too optimistic and Mother Nature made it very clear this morning: she decides when I can just wear shorts or when I must put the long johns on.

Spring is NOT on its way!

Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
Fair-weather riding is a luxury reserved for Sunday afternoons and wide boulevards. Those who ride in foul weather – be it cold, wet, or inordinately hot – are members of a special club of riders who, on the morning of a big ride, pull back the curtain to check the weather and, upon seeing rain falling from the skies, allow a wry smile to spread across their face. This is a rider who loves the work. – velominati.com

-12°C, blue skies: sunny but rather cold 10-kilometer (6.2 miles) ride to work this morning. What about yours?

Update. Looks like it’s going to be cold all week: Sweden hit by ‘unusually low’ temperatures
