I rode my bike in the snow.
Michael planned a 42-mile route in Hoosier National Forest near Norman. Tim, Dave, and I joined him for the fun. The weather was in the low to mid-20s with blowing snow. Perfect! 🙂
The other three riders were on mountain bikes with knobby tires. I was on my LHT with studded tires. It worked out well.
Michael did have a mishap on ice, but it doesn’t appear to have done any permanent damage.
The restaurant we had planned to have a late lunch/early dinner at was closed when we finished the ride. I assume due to weather conditions.
Something I haven’t run into before today, but I definitely made the decision: I yield to snow plows! When I spotted the plow coming up behind me, I pulled off of the road and jumped over the guard rail to give him plenty of room.

You guys are over-achievers. Stop it! You’re making the rest of us look bad.
Great writeup. I’m glad you came, it was a challenging day of riding, but also a blast!
By the way, your photos made me realize that 3/4 of us were wearing blue jackets. As such, we are nearly indistinguishable in some of the photos.
I think I would prefer your climate. Since I live here, I’ll do my best to enjoy it. 🙂
It was a great day. I was the odd one out of the bunch: no blue jacket, reflective vest, lights, non-mountain bike, studded tires. No matter what equipment we had, it was fun.
Sorry Dave, but you’re the odd one out no matter what bike or jacket.
Love that 2nd pic Dave. It captures the conditions well.
