I'm not a fan of cold weather and certainly not snow, but "cooler" weather is welcome just about anytime. Fall bike riding, regardless of the type is loads of fun and quite relaxing too. You start off with a chill, but rather than working up to near heat stroke, you work up to high-energy comfort... at least I do. Looking forward to a Cold November Rain ride in a few weeks and yes, GNR will be on the playlist. So, with beautiful photo ops in abundance, go crunch some leaves and enjoy one of the best times of the year for outdoor exercise.
