    Hi. And there's no problem with your computer. There is a filter that stops url's and such until you have 30 posts. I think you can post in the photo section, I'm not sure.

    Any way, use the search function and if that doesn't help feel free to post a thread.

    Welcome to the forum. You must be tough to ride all year in Sweden.

    I often ride (unmotorized) at 0 deg F. Perhaps that's roughly -20 deg C.

    You have to experiment with finding just the right clothing combination. And it can get a bit tiresome putting that stuff on and taking it off. But the sense of accomplishment is wonderful. Especially for those who get to feeling stiff and sore when we spend too much time driving our cars.

    But when the snow gets to be about 3 inches (maybe 7 cm), you're getting pretty near the end.
