After I made a delicious breakfast of oatmeal/peanut butter pancakes and some tators, Bennett dragged David, Paddy and I out for a ride in some awesome freezing rain. It started as snow, but changed over to freezing rain and it wasn't long before our bikes were completely covered in ice.

No shifting after a half hour as all gears, chainrings and cables were frozen.

Us northerns know all to well about this experience. Paddy's helmet was even frozen to his hat. Poor, Poor Aussie going through his first true winter and it's only the first of December. And for all of those who may not know, or may have forgotting.... BRIDGES FREEZE BEFORE ROAD WAY! Those signs aren't just there for decoration. Be careful out there.
