    Winter Bike To Work Day is conceptually great, but it seems problematic in practice. I rode by Marty’s and Local Press, but the idea of taking all my crap off, locking up my bike, going inside to get something, then going back out in the cold and putting on my now cold sweaty balaclava deterred me from stopping…. Still, it was a nice day for a ride. Any chance of an outdoor stall?
