Having spent the first 27 years of my life in tropical Australia, the extreme seasons of Minnesota have been quite a change. I remember wanting to wear ski goggles anytime I was outside during my first Minnesota winter. Actually, it wasn't even winter yet - it was still fall!
That was back in 2001. Now, years later, I've embraced winter cycling and advocate for riding to work with my Twitter and Instagram feeds: @BiketoworkMN
The differences between Australian climate and culture still fascinate and entertain me as I ride around this state. For the perspective of someone from the very, very deep south, have a read. Then go ride your bike!
