February was the coldest month in Toronto's recorded history, but trust me when I tell you last February wasn't much warmer and seemed to include more snow and ice. And the analytics tell me I managed to bike a great deal more this year. Here is how my cycling in February 2015 compared to February 2014.
February 2015: 217.29 km
February 2014: 28.47 km
I'm chalking up this vast improvement to an improved mindset. Quite simply, temperatures I deemed too cold to bike in back in 2014 felt a great deal warmer this year. And the more winter biking you do, the more confidence and ability you gain.
My goal for 2015 remains a personal best 5,000 km. I'm currently at 609.63 km with the worst two cycling months behind me.
