I'm down for a coffee or whatever works. What part of the park should we meet at? The lucky penny cafe might work?

Hi Everyone,

At the meet up we discussed biking in the winter and studded tires. I think I said I'd post a link to remind everyone of the discussion: http://www.icebike.org/the-ultimate-gui ... ded-tires/

In a nutshell studded tires would appear to be worth it only if you bike a lot in snowy/icy conditions.

I get snow rarely enough that it's easier to just not bike in it.
