Now I'm not complaining. I am defenitely more of a fair-weather fan, though I like the drama and challenges that the snow and winter present. Especially in the backcountry when I go backpacking or some other such activity in this weather. Am planning just such a trip this year for the Laurel Highlands Trail in Laurel Ridge SP, more of a camping trip actually, though using the backcountry shelters, I don't think we will do as much hiking in as we will hanging by the fire and hoping to watch the snow fall all around us, but thats a month or two down the road.
In the meantime, I don't know what it is, could it be the fluctuating temperatures, that are making my bike components fall apart? The pedals on my Giant have lost two screws/bolts in one side that holds the central part of the pedal to the frame of the pedal. And although not an issue yet, I need to add a few connectors there before the whole thing falls off. I just get so lazy about it when I have to do it out on my cold and windy front porch in the dark of the one front light and my headlamp.
