It was -17 C this morning so I decided to spare the Yamaha from a cold start and rode my mountain bike to work, 30 km each way.
These freezing winter mornings are beautiful.
The bike was built on a cheap Giant 26″ frame mainly with XT parts. An excellent commuter.
The huge spiked tires are a real drag, I lose almost half of my speed compared to summer tires, and the compacted snow does not help either.
