Embracing Winter's Misery with Q36.5

by Anthony Little |

20151126-BK_ACQ365_1284

The days are short, nights long. Mornings are frigid. Evening is worse. If there is a hell for cyclists, the whole of the Northern Hemisphere above the 37th Parallel is being dipped into it for a three-month swim. This is when a nice ride can go from a simple excursion circa-September to a 30-minute preparatory ordeal in January, and even then, misery greets us at the garage threshold. Misery we love to embrace with the company of Q36.5.
