NYC: Winter Wonderland of Cycling

As New York continues its slow surrender to winter, here a few things that can make you wonder why you continue to live here:




Your bike looks like the rim of a margarita glass.



It's cold in Fahrenheit...




...and in Celcius!


Instead of getting stuck behind a woman talking on her cellphone with a Balducci's bag dangling from her handlebars, you get stuck behind this.


Local retail clothing chain and arch-enemy of tall-bike enthusiasts Brooklyn Industries is having it's annual Holiday Crap-tacular.



The rats dogs are wearing Christmas sweaters.

F*&@'n COLD MAN!

aaron said...

It was so cold the other morning that riding into work I hit a bump, heard a crack, and noticed an immediate "squishy" sensation coming from my saddle.

No, I had not lost control of my bowels, but had shattered the plastic shell of my Arione saddle. Only the rails and cover were holding it together.

It was 20 degrees, I think.

mhandsco said...

-32.8 F with wind this morning in Winnipeg. So cold the Celsius and Fahrenheit start coming into line...

Lots of folks on bikes today. I sure as shit ain't one of them.

Let me be the first to say:

Cool 60 deg F, cloudy, light breeze in Burbank, CA

Almost felt a chill while riding this morning just before sunrise.

aaron said...

"am i reading correctly? negative 32 farenheit? and people are riding?"

I was thinking that assuming a 15-20 mph "wind" from riding it wouldn't have to get *that* cold to hit a wind chill of -32F. But then I looked at this chart: http://www.mountwashington.com/weather/wind-chill.html

You need an air temp of -5 to -10 to get a 15-20mph wind chill of -32; that's seriously fecking cold.

d00d. where are the floridians? a winter heat wave lulling them into naps?

come on. isn't it like 84° in southern florida? where are you guys?

judi said...

I love winter riding. Being my first winter riding a road bike, so far I think it rocks, except I need some good glasses/goggles that don't fog up.

Great post Bike Snob.

Evershed said...

Wamp Wamp

Dear Bike Snob thank you for the commenting advice, have a great day.

gttim said...

50 Degrees in Atlanta right now. I am expecting my bike ride tomorrow to be in the high 50's to start and high 60's at the end. I might have to wear knickers, toe covers and a vest. Brrrrr!

thefutureofamerica said...

My best suggestion for glasses that don't fog up is to slide them down your nose so you maintain the protection from road debris but can look over them to actually see - that's what I had to do riding home in 30 F and sleet last night here in St. Louis, MO. I haven't been seeing any of the other cyclists I normally pass on my way to work, though... it's gettin' lonely out there.

Mikey said...

I have two of those rat/dogs, and yes, they need sweaters to keep them warm. And if it's Christmas, why can't they show their little puppy-wuppy Christmas spirit too?
It's only 37 here today, but snowing and the altitude makes it hard to breathe.

clayton said...

christ. dog's aren't baby humans.

anyway, the only dog clothing i approve are those little sweater/blankets with the pouches and handles. if you really want your dog to be a fashion accessory, why not get one of these and carry the thing like a purse? put your wallet, keys and iphone in the pouches.

andrew nicholas said...

"nyc: winter wonderland of cycling" haha.

true true. it does make you wanna keep your bike in your apartment here though. :( this is unrelated, but here in NYC, it always makes me sad when you see a clean bike on a block each day, then on the third day, a wheel is gone, on the forth day, the other wheel is gone...

clayton said...

LOOK!! DOG PURSE!!.

Anonymous said...

I have found that sliding my glasses down my nose causes more snot-sickles. Last year I ditched the glasses in lieu of slightly blurry rides. Running fenders helps with the road debris. Without the glasses I used to get watery eyes on decents, but with a fixie my maximum downhill speed is about 25mph. Since I am middle-aged, my eyebrows are getting long and gnarly. Soon I will be able to comb them down in front of my eyes for further protection. I'm thinking of growing a beard.

Karl Rover said...

BSNYC. So when it gets cold and icy, do you bust out the MTB or do you stick with your fixie for urban riding? Just curious...

-D said...

"it always makes me sad when you see a clean bike on a block each day, then on the third day, a wheel is gone, on the forth day, the other wheel is gone..."

That's hipster art, man. It's a metaphor for the decay of capitalist society.

Anna said...

our critical mass is tonight, it's supposed to snow/wind/freezing rain.

decked out in my winter hipster best:
jeans, tights, socks, three shirts, hoodie, hat, gloves, scarf, arm warmers.

it's going to be awesome!

daddo.one said...

c'mon Anna skip it, CM does NOTHING good...I mean if a CM ride were 20o cyclists adhering to traffic rules and not sneering at the public they'd be great.
But they are quite the opposite.

Either way, be safe!

Thomas said...

I rather like the Christmas tree hauling.

Except I like fake trees better.


All this cold weather reminds me of Futurama.
"At night the temperature gets down to 250 below!"
"Is that...Celcius, or Fahrenheit?"
"Firs' one, then th'other."

BikeSnobNYC said...

Karl Rover,

I'll use the fixed-gear and the cyclocross bike with fenders for urban riding over the winter.

I'm curious to see how many days (hours?) it takes Brooklyn Industries to get their "Bike Culture is Not for Sale" shirts printed.

I love that tall-bike guy "Darko" is a "creative" for Ralph Loren. At least he knows what the "hardcore" folks don't: that he's living at the cutting edge of consumerism, and not participating in real rebellion. That's one irony that hipster culture refuses to embrace.

Bottom line: if yer hip, then yer not, but if yer not, then you are. That makes me hip! I freakin' win!

is that a homemade bsnyc seal of disapproval sticker? did you just find that on a random bike?

leroy said...

Ahh nothing says winter like the flat tire I got yesterday morning at the crest of the Brooklyn Bridge right in view of the time and tempreture sign.

I'm going to search Sheldon Brown's site now. If anybody knows how to rig a heater for a bike, it would be him.

To Eric K, "that picture with the guy towing the Christmas tree would be allot[sic] funnier if it were engulfed in flames"

That sentiment is true of virtually any picture. For example: "That picture of the ratdog in the sweather would be much funnier if it were engulfed in flames"

HAHA

also, good point on the "cutting edge of consumerism" bit. i like to point out that the dumpster diver's rely on capitalism as much or more than others. i call them capitalism's fungus, though it seems fungus does more good for the world than dumpster divers.

i wish we could suspend "the man" and shut down "the system" for just a month and see how many tall bike scavengers make it through wihout their freshly stocked dumspters.

I love when the weatherman says, "More bad weather ahead," and it turns out to be a nice snowfall.

Cold?

With all the retro merino wool out there, who's cold? LG windstopper gloves. Ahhh. I even have a larger helmet that fits right over my bunny hat.

Hot chocolate, red wine.

Maybe some of those BC riders could send me some nice elk steaks.

And I got a flat last night too.

My only complaint is the yellow ice left by the fashion dawgs. Slippery.

Hey people in the southern part of the country -

Checked the link on the "tall bike window display" debacle. I thought the graffiti actually helped. Gave the window some of that "hipster irony", like "in your face" and all. They should have just left it, then quietly changed out the glass when the display came down. Talk about ignoring a gift horse.

Hey FutureOfAmerica,
I rode home in the STL slushy crapness last night as well. Definitely a thinning of the herd of cyclists though I still see a bunch in the Central West End in the mornings.

"You need an air temp of -5 to -10 to get a 15-20mph wind chill of -32"

It's only -18C = 0F right now (http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/mb-38_metric_e.html), but the forecast low is -29C = -20F. If it was that cold this morning, you don't need all *that* much wind to get to -32F.

And sure, people still ride. The mail must get through.

Jim said...

Daddo One - what, do you want a cookie?

Aaron - try losing some weight. I found my saddles stopped breaking when I did that. Or you could move.

Mhandsco - just move, you sick puppy. If the Jets could figure out that the answer to the question was "Phoenix," so could you.

Anon :59 - sure the weather's nice in Cali. But then you have to live around Californians. Tough call, between that and frostbite.

Erik K - I think you meant to post that comment at Chunk 666

Judi - I'm saving your comments proclaiming your everlasting love for winter riding, and I'm going to bring them up *after* your first season of doing it, say, March 15th. I admire your optimism and positive attitude, but just between you and me, I'm taking winter, and the points.

Clayton - right on. Dogs aren't baby humans. But they can be made to taste suspiciously like baby cows. I wouldn't try that in this country, however.

GTim - don't forget to carry your spare Tampax on the ride tomorrow with all your fleece kit, Assos bibs, LG gloves, and Lake Winter Boots. It is going to be in the upper 50s, after all. Say, how do you spell the opposite of "Flahute"?

Anna - I'm impressed. CM in the snow and ice? That's *hard* as a bag of hammers. Are you single? If so, I have an idea why...

Daddo One - guess she's not dating you anyhow. Or GTim.

Thomas - sheer genius. Total bonus points for any quote from those rare TV series that were canceled without Ted McGinley's help.

Bikesnob - impeccable taste in winter bikes, mirrors my own except my 'cross bike (the pit bike anyhow) is both fixed & fendered. Not sure if I'm one upping you, or one downing me with that.

Mr. Complaint - That's a plush getup. I bet you're the only road cyclist in the world who sports a DVD player on the bike during your LSD rides, and who actually gains weight during longer races. Just a hunch.

WSK_R - Earnest joined the Army, didn't he? What's earnest doing here?

RyanK, you're my kinda people. Baconators though? I'm guessing you're not from the Jewish part of New Hampshire.

LeRoy - careful about asking Sheldon Brown questions. He only grants three wishes. And you'd damn well better have the wording correct, or there will be consequences. Or am I thinking Jobst Brandt?

MWeed - vaseline will help heal up that palm mark on your forehead, from where you slapped it over the Seal / Supermodel pun. I'm guessing you have a tub of it handy.

Otis - are you a professor of semiotics? If you are, it was just my lucky guess, alright? If you aren't, then no, semiotics has nothing to do with semen. Nothing whatsoever. So don't be angry with me.

Hey, it's all just funnin. Consider the above accumulated snark my version of season's greetings. I get as many laughs from the comments here as from BSNYC's entries. Thanks for giving! If failed to insult you personally, or failed to make you laugh... so sorry. Prolly assures me, you can take it out on him 'cuz he knows how to take a joke, unlike some people.

Happy holidays, all.

Here is Minneapolis is has snowed about 10 inches this week and the only streets that are covered in snow are are the busy streets without bike trails. The wind chill is already about -10F with a temperature of about 4F here and some of us bike all the same. Tonight when the temperature is -4F and the windchill is something like -20F I will hate biking home.

Eating dogs kind of look like huuugggge chows w/o so much fur around the neck. They basically sit in these small dog cages, except outside.

broomie said...

Attn all people in warm climates:

Your weather reports are just annoying. And it is a sign that you are an ass to rub in it someone else's face. I live in southern california and even I find you annoying. Anon from Burbank, your city is an armpit, who cares what your weather is like? When the mercury hits 4000 there in summer I notice the tv writers and porn actors aren't so smug about the climate. And if I hear one more report from Florida, I'll drive out there, get my free glass of OJ at the border and run down the first weird beard on a bike with a fishing pole I see. Your state is so flat your version of riding bikes is akin to a merry go round. You guys can't climb, can't descend & can't ride a striaght line from the constant flow of budget beer that is sweating from your brow. You do seem to be good at fishing off the side of the road while sitting on a Murray cruiser, because you lost you license to DUI.
I feel better now. Apologies to my brothers and sisters who must ride in inclement weather and know what fenders are for. I've raced in freezing weather before and its not exactly fun.

Der Blaue Reiter said...

Re: Dogs.

I was walking along in the snow yesterday (banned from biking for a week long study, hating it) thinking about bikesnob posts, when I see this lady out walking a 3 legged dog. I ogle at the poor thing, and she shoots me a look like "how dare you make a spectacle out of my tripod dog?"

Well straight away I start making little metaphors and comparisons in my head concerning people who coddle their fixies and people who treat their dogs like humans. I'm trying to figure out a way to justify my love of my bike, just like freak-dog-lady.

Anyway, I'm broken out of my reverie by the uncomfortable feeling of stepping in dogshit, twice in a row, one squarely under each foot.

I hate those bastards, regardless of leg count, sweaters or no!

Too late! You have to move to Oregon if you want to live around Californians. If you DON'T want to live around Californians, California is now safe.
However, you do have to put up with a million people all walking around confused in December saying "you call this a winter??"

Or that could be you. Which is fine, because 999,999 people would say "yeah, tell me about it!"

Bluenoser said...

Well the black ice and the fixed gear business first. When you hit the black ice take advantage of your fixed gear and pedal like hell backwards. This isn't going to do anything for you but will make those who watching you laugh all the harder as you go down. When you do don't hang on to the bars or if your a hipster, whatever nubs might be sticking out of the stem. This is one of the major causes of the broken collarbone. (said like a true crit rider) Just relax and dust yourself off.

Out for a ride today 4C. The lt. col. is right, it doesn't matter where you live just ride when you can.

One of the reasons we have so many people moving here to Nova Scotia from Holland and Germany is that we have four distinct seasons. We are luck this way. Give you a bit of an idea when to rest when to rebuild and when to have fun.

Lt. COl. Jim

I'm not pissed about people being in warmer climates. I'm pissed with people who are "SMUG" about their climates. Its the meteorlogical equivavlent to "nyahh nyaah nya nyaaah" As if they somewhow are smarter than the rest of the country. I'm sure Florida guy won't be so giddy when the next hurricane blows through. Fortunatly in Cali the earthquakes only throw you off your bike for a 1/2 minute max. Although last last bout of wildfires kinda put a damper on some good rides.


Your post is interesting, and I'm glad you're stll alive and have good stories. I've had some harsh rides, too, but I've only been shot at once and never had to deal with landmines so I genuinely salute you, sir. Keep the faith and I'm sure you'll make a full bird soon.

BTW, Do you still have all your fingers and toes?

GhostRider said...

Broomie, why the Florida hate? As was pointed out a few days ago on this here blog (perhaps even by you?), our weather is ALL we have to be smug/happy/proud about. We've got no hills, no mountains, two shitty baseball teams...but LORD do we have a bunch of lane-hogging oldtimers in big sedans.

Oh, and if you visit, DON'T drink the free OJ. The tourist board pees in the container (but you didn't hear it from me)...because the year-rounders really really hate tourists.

lt col tim said...

Broomie,

Certainly not too smart here! Keep getting sent to these places. Seriously, I wouldn't trade all the crap for all the people I've met and worked with.

As for parts...got them all! As for that bird thing well, don't think I'll be in that long medically but thanks.

broomie said...

Re: Florida hate

The truth is I have been ignoring my studies. I have 2 term papers due and finals are next week. I am also short on internship hours. The resulting anxiety is being displaced onto innocent cyclists. Like a stressed out botox, soccer mom in an H3 I have swerved into the bikelane of hatersburg!
Sorry guys. I throw myself onto your mercies.
I am giving myself a timeout for acting up. Ride safe and stay warm (or cool as the case may be)
