Hardy cyclists riding through the winter have been socializing monthly in East Hartford for breakfast at Maddie's and this month we're expanding to Downtown Hartford. It's important that we band together and practice our conversation skills. Riding through the winter is considered weird enough that others may start giving you a wider berth at work. Not sure why Hartford metro is so allergic to winter cycling, as it seems that other interesting cities (Boston, Chicago, NYC, Montreal, Minneapolis, Fort Collins, Madison) aren't so fickle. There is even an official global Winter Bike to Work Day, where you can commit to ride on February 13th.
