    After weeks without sun (so it seemed) finally a weekend where everything fit together. Free time, fresh snow and beautiful weather.

    Enough of cross country skiing or running through dismal weather. I took my Merida out and put the OM-D into my backpack:

    I like the color shots! Where is the location?
    You need to get a fat bike;)

    Nice scenery. Like the way the white bike coordinates with the snowy scenes.

    I've been off the bike for about ten days due to travel and a nasty slush/freeze/thaw cycle lately, but managed to ride to work this morning.

    The first photo is from Christmas Day, and the second is one of my typical commute. I took a few pics this morning but they're still on my camera...

    I have only enough coordination to stay on my bike in spring, summer and fall. And barely that.

    I got a snow bike this winter, so I have to keep riding to justify the purchase.

    I love it! Where did you get those tires?

    My bike is ready to come out and ride, but the skis are still getting my time. I will give it six weeks!

    That bike was built for tires like that, InlawBiker. I think that's a Fatbike or something similar.

    I do ride my bike all winter, as my normal commuting vehicle. Here it is parked in front of my office:

    Not quite the rough and tough winter images one would expect ... but winter nonetheless ...

    I used to ride single track in the snow when I was younger. It was soooo fun when I actually got around to dragging myself outside.

    What a huge mistake to spend the winter indoors. Love the photos.

    No snow, but a chilly wintry day nonetheless
