Hi, my name is Katherine and I am a cycling addict. I bike to school/work every day of the week, rain or shine, though I much prefer the shine. During the summer, I could proudly wear my tight biking shorts, biking shirt and red helmet and zoom through the Gatineau Park like a pro.
By the time I reach campus (12 km later), I have a runny nose, a frozen tushy (and yet sweaty armpits) and only a secure bike storage standing between my hot coffee and I. But this is only the beginning of a thread of cold bike rides, though I’m debating putting my bike through slush and salt, I’d feel bad for it. I would love to be able to bike year-round as it is my downtime, work out and transportation all combined into one awesome sport! Ah, dear bicycle, I shall miss thee!
