Where're all the Winter Daytime TCBC Riders?

Here's an about a three minute video of Tim and I riding today from Hopkins!

A couple of the answers to that question are kind of sad, and a few of those winter wanderers are now pulling cactus thorns from their tires. This geezer has some good memories of well populated snowy sojourns 10+ years ago. The bundled up peloton would laugh and pedal through a few inches of fresh fluff in near blizzard conditions and then make a mad dash for Wendy's for hot drinks and food. Ever fix a flat in below zero wind chill?

Great video Mike. As for the question of "where are all the Winter riders" Jeff and the other snowbirds are riding in Arizona, Texas and Florida. Some of us are skiing, hiking, snowshoeing and Fat Biking in the woods. And a lot of riders are in their basements riding a trainer on Zwift. But fear not, the days are already getting longer and warmer and riders will soon be showing up anxious for group riding.
