    same here on the west coast. This time of year the sun is down by 4 and our winter is all rain so it's dodgy as hell to be out on the roads

    Oh I totally get it, it's just not for me I can't deal with the trainer so I have a cyclocross bike for shit weather and snow.
    Still, I invariably lose a lot of fitness and gain some ballast every winter Mountain biking is good in winter too, but I think it gets colder for you guys than it does in the UK. I had a blast riding in the snow last winter though. Oddly it was more rideable than when the weather hovers up and down around freezing point, as that usually breeds loads of black ice etc.

    Exactly! That's how much I hate turbo trainers, I'd rather travel to the bottom of the world instead.

    Over here it's at 3:20 PM. I barely see the sun because it's dark when I go to work and dark when I leave from work.

    Luckily most of my (short) commute has bicycle paths so it's pretty safe to cycle with my cyclocross with studded tyres.
