    Chicago winters are brutal, you can still ride but when it's snowing and the wind chill brings the temp down to -30 you don't really want to. That being said what are some other things that you do over the winter to keep your spirits up and your legs going?

    Thought You Knew PinUp Calendar is hosting sprints this Thursday at the Empty Bottle for all you Chicago people.!/event.php?eid=166982463342556&index=1

    Rollers in front of a TV is a great idea! :)

    Or how about just use the time to build your summer bike?

    It's a ton of fun :)

    Personally I'll be tearing apart my geared project for some much-needed TLC, new parts, and maybe a new paint job.

    Once it dries up outside all the work will be sooo worth it.

    Start strength training your legs/core and shock everyone with your superhuman cycling power when the weather shifts.

    move to Austin and ride everyday!!!
    You can go to a gym. As long as you don't mind people engaging in extended eye contact with you.

    i want to move south so bad just so i can ride everyday and not wonder if my toes officially have frost bite, but one more semester of school before i can think of anything like that.
