When I'm not bicycling, I'm a Linux SysAdmin. I'm on the board of my local bicycle advocacy group.

Bikes are my primary transportation. A 2009 Surly Long Haul Trucker, set up as a commuter and a 2012 Trek Ion CX. I also take the bus, but do not own a car.

revised How can I bike in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada?
Picked a temp scale and ran with it. If I'm wrong it's "-50F (-45C)", and, really, there's not a lot of difference in how to handle temps below -40 on either scale.
