The arrival of winter and its uncertainty will always pose a challenge for any type of cyclist be they a commuter or a rider intent on just maintaining a level of fitness over the winter.

The challenge may be sometimes motivation or even the warmth of the family bosom. But the winter is a time I love riding my bike. All I need is a bike that is well-serviced and warm clothing. The season of winter will always have a grumpy appearance but the road will always beat the turbo for quality and satisfaction.

The early morning rides can be the hardest and the most beautiful as the day dawns to release you to the road. As the last gulp of coffee goes down and the family are still soundly asleep, I close the door and enter a different world.
