Here's what happens when we get a little bit of rain here in Phoenix.  This was on 09/10/13.  There is a road that goes through this wash and, as you can see, there weren't any cars going through there for about a week.  I'll also mention that thanks to bike riding and walking, I've lost 30 pounds since this picture!

Not a great fan of that gear stick just perfectly positioned to catch your..<mens bits>.
Perhaps you could/should modify it to handlebar shifters as per the MkIII Raleigh Chopper (the Chopper itself was modelled [I believe] after that Schwinn).

This is is the type of weather I ride in which is the norm for Great Britain we are a cycling family all nine of us
I haven't driven a car since may 2002 weather conditions don't worry me my biggest problem is drunks who
feel the need to break their bottles killing mine and my family's bike tubes.

Ps bike man love your tops "one less car " have felt that way for a long time

centre as I liked the look of the frame and it was in a really bad state but now I so love my bike and is a pleasure to ride on and off road

Hi Bikeman and Crew
My brother in law sent me a picture of him cycling in Stormville, New York on November 14, 2014. He's riding his bike for COPD. I told him I would submit it for him. We can't wait for your jerseys to go on sale. I love the show and will register soon.

PhotoGrid_1416277038341.jpg I love commuting everyday and simply enjoy it more than driving no matter the weather! My commuter bike used to be a 26" Specialized Stumpjumper which I converted to a 700c daily driver. My favorite component are these Velo Orange Crazy Bars. Who knew sweep back city bars and bullhorns could be so handy! Love your show, keep up the great work[smile]

No bad weather but felt I had to post something so:-




I was supposed to take a video showing the horrible weather in Scotland, however this is (what seems) the mildest winter ever and as at the end of November there was still no snow . So opted instead to show a normal trip, but undertaken at this time of year this soon turned into a gentle tootle directly home as the rear hub was playing silly beggars[1]ended up getting of the bike at Currie and walking the remaining mile and a half home.

[1] Since repacked[2] but untested (apart from a quick birl round the village which showed no obvious noises). There was no obvious damage to the balls or cones/cups The grease in it had to be seen to be believed: nice honey colour going in, a horrible black sludge when it came out .
[2] twentyminutes~quarter of an hour to take of wheel dissasemble freewheel and do the actual re-packing three quarters of an hour trying to get the axle rotating freely but with no slop (fine~tighten~no longer fine~undo, repeat x50)

Jsantiago's for me. With Jim's(Jim Frozen) a close second (might have been number one if we had seen more of him actually on the bike in that weather).
