It’s that time of year. This is a great ride.
The wheelmen site says this ride has been going since the 1970s. Does that make it the city’s longest standing group ride?
If i can’t make it I’ll send Mrs. marvelous in my place
In…would love to say hello to many of you, whom I’ve never met before. I’ll wear something recognizable and unique!

Sounds like fun, but I’m not sure if I’ll be back in Pittsburgh at that point. I bought a one way ticket to FL for the holidays to visit my family so that I could be flexible for new years plans.
Also in email contact with ejwme, who said she’s a likely.
Im not quite sure where ill be, but does/will/could this ride include the ploar bear plunge at the MOn WHarf?
The Polar Bear Plunge is much earlier – I think around 8 or 9.
So, obviously, if you are really tough you’ll do the Polar Bear plunge, then Icicle Bicycle, then, I don’t know, sunbathe nude on the Point.
This would be fun to do in an abominable snowman costume.
dammit. i really should know better than to leave town for holidays. this time i get back on the 4th.

@ajbooth – I hope “unique” will with the helmet from your avatar! That would be so cool!!
I’m a gametime decision. Planning yes but……

Really really wonderful writing. Relatable, if it ever gets cold;
^Yes, well written (thanks for posting), but Oh, that sounds so awful. I do not want to bike in -40 temperatures, ever. no. not even for the glory of having done it. Yeesh.
Would I feel/be bad ass if I ever did ride at -40, hell yes!!! I’d tattoo it somewhere.
How fast/slow is this ride? Trying to 1) decide on our plans and 2) decide which bike to bring if we come.
Slow. I wasn’t there last year, but the year before we rode maybe 12 miles and stopped at least 3 times for hot chocolate or some other reason; the pace was super-casual when riding.

Bruce is thinking about night light up Jan 1st. I don’t know if it’s going to happen yet. He wanted to blast an e-mail to WPW list too.
I highly recommend BIKING on the first day of the new year, but if hiking is more to your liking, there is also a hike in Raccoon Creek Park you may want to try.
Nice, thanks for that tip. Raccoon is very nice, wish I could do both! That reminds me, I need to do some winter camping.
Looking like this year is the real deal!! Some years are wet or warm-ish.

The weather psychics were forecasting a high probability of snowfall as well.
Dress warm for this one.
I posted in the Facebook event, but I will also let those of you not on Facebook know that the trails (at least the jail trail) are still covered with ice and snow this morning. The route appears to take the jail trail and the south side trail for a majority of it. I am not sure if the route would be changed to road only, but if it isn’t, bring fat, knobby tires/studded tires for the trail, unless you have good bike handling skills on slick skinnier on icy footprints and tire grooves that go every direction.
