Snow Days

The snow day that wasn’t in Seattle, is now one today and while that’s slowing down our blog productivity (kids at Hugga HQ bouncing off the walls), it’s also generating much discussion on riding with studded tires, cleats, and riding indoors, especially with euro hotness.


Seattle PI in their ongoing coverage has this shot of a cyclist riding his bike in the snow, here’s another, and the Seattle Times has this video with a cyclist at 01:43.
