Over of week of < -20C weather, -30 this weekend so I'll have to use the treadmill this week. Nothing destroys my legs like the few times a year I go running.

What is the proper etiquette for passing pedestrians? I have no bell and I always yell out to couples, people with dogs, and children, because all three are naturally unpredictable. But I never alert individual pedestrians and I just go around them with space thinking they would naturally check behind if they wanted to merge left. However I am apparently scarring these kinds pedestrians and pissing them off. How should I adapt my strategy to prevent this?
>>
>>1607870
Proper etiquette is to assume that everyone is an idiot and ride accordingly. Oblivious idiots without sense to be mindful in traffic should be scared straight. Don't scar them though.
>>
>>1607871
>>1607872
Hmm. Makes sense, like defensive driving. Got it.
>>
>>1607871
also applies to drivers and other cyclists
whenever encountering another person while riding your bike, ask yourself,
>what is the absolute dumbest, most dangerous thing this person could do?
then assume they are going to do it and act accordingly
>>
>>1607870
just get a bell fag

4th running day. Seems like 5 days of running is the magic number to get past stiff legs. Looking back at my ride log I managed to avoid running at all last year, as there was only one week long cold snap and I just sat on my ass. Started at 2.5 miles and adding half a mile a day until I hit 50-60 minute duration or the weather warms up.

Lovely afternoon today. Got out to run an errand and ended up just randomly cruising around town for an hour or so on my stupidly heavy commuting bike without wearing any special kit - riding hard on fast roads, taking it easy through parks and shortcuts. Just felt good.

Nice day for a 30 km river ride. All the groups ended up converging near the turn around point, then spread out again on the way back.

I wonder what that would be like riding on an normal mountainbike.
>>

A bit too soft for a mtb to be any fun, but mid afternoon as the surface snow got sticky and started packing instead of getting displaced it might have been ok. In a few spots where we had 30 bikes pass in the same track it was still loose with the snow not binding to itself at all.

Ice can often be ridden on even hybrids / cross bikes it all comes down the snow cover. One day you can have 6 inches of snow, the next day the wind can strip it down to bare ice. Due to freeze thaw cycles the ice surface usually textured and not too slippery when all the snow is gone, except under bridges.

It only got up to 4C today but the snow did a ton of melting thanks to a clear sky. I went for an evening ride and it was wet roads everywhere with huge puddles due to ice plugged drains. I was hoping the fat bike trails would be firm after the sun went down, but they were still too soft to ride. Even the alleys which usually stay dry longer were all turning to slush.

One nice thing is there was a lot of clumpy slush around as I was heading home. That stuff is fun to ride on after it freezes. Lots of grip and make a deafening crunching noise.

Enjoyed a crusty morning ride, and got home before the streets started getting wet. A flock of ducks sticks around all winter despite the occasional -30C days. The lake at the main park has aerators that keep a few patches of water open all winter to help cut down on the dead fish in the spring.

What is the point of a bicycle like this that pedals for you? Why buy a bicycle at all? Why do you need full suspension for riding on a boardwalk with slicks and carbon wheels? Sorry anon, I am not a hater, but this is a retarded contraption. This is what people like Osama Bin laden are talking about when they mention the sickness plaguing the West.

Thats some real shitty bait you are implying there. I also remember him bitching about living at the top of some godforsaken +25% grade. No body likes that shit.

that's something to conquer. he decided to bitch out with an "eeb" instead.

Windy tomorrow so tonight I went for a second ride. A little further than I was planning, racking up 67 km of fat biking for the day.

The side streets are getting progressively icier. Its still a kind of lumpy ice which my fat studs can grab onto, but a few more days and it could smooth out enough to significantly reduce grip. The lumpy ice is actually pretty fun to ride, though I take it easy in the turns.

The rail line I frequently ride is melting down in one spot exposing the ties, so that section is getting bumpy. Most bodies of water are unsafe now due to storm drain discharge from road melt and a few major watermain breaks.

i just rediscovered the joy of cycling after a few years away from it, been mad into cycling since i was a kid, spent most of my free time as a kid out on my bike, but you know how life changes prioritizes and these things tend to fall by the wayside. ANyway after finding out my wife of 23 years was banging her boss of 25 years I decided to say fuck it all and bought myself a nice bike. i have to say I am thoroughly enjoying life, I don't even miss the car, not that I had any say in it, they have the car and the house and they are fucking welcome to it all, just give me somewhere to lock my bike and a quiet bedsit in a house filled with Romanian labourers and I'm happy.

lol where is this? people even get mad and give me an earful when I use my fucking bell in bongistan (these are people walking in the actual road, might I add, I never ride on MUPs). I've even had one particularly assblasted karen try and stop me passing while shrieking about her dog (which was off the lead and not under control) until a cage came up behind me and honked.
Thanks for reading my blog post

Could be the last week for the fat bike. Above freezing every day this week so the side streets will get progressively more icy with deepening ice ruts. A few weeks of studded mtb riding after that, and maybe some gravel on the touring bike.

The sun is pretty intense now. Yesterday was -16C and the snow on the road was melting with water vapor wafting off. When its like that any water that splashes onto the bike freezes instantly gradually building up big chunks of ice.
