One of my mottos is, "Never a bad day to ride". After this week, I have tossed that one out the window. With the snow and ice, riding this week would have primarily been an exercise in walking the bike. Yes, I've seen the DIY "chains" for bikes (zip ties around the rim and tire--a great idea if you have disc brakes--which I do, but only on the front wheel of Stella). I'm just glad I haven't had to go anywhere.
Here are some photos to illustrate my point.
