Now, now, now...
I don't *hate* winter, what makes you think that? I really don't. I could do without it of course, like most people, but while it lasts, I have learned to live with it.
I do not have any problem with winter cycling either, nor do I have have any problem with those who practice it. It's just not for me.
It's hard enough dealing with sucky slushy or icy sidewalks
Well, actually it looks like they might get salted a bit more this year...
In any case, the roads do go through this phase for a long while before becoming slushy, then "cleared".
And as for the so-called "white network" cleaning, there you go!
Some people are totally satisfied with that, I am not.
As I do not have the guts yet to cycle in the middle of the roads on big arteries (I do it just fine on secondary streets but they are too disgusting for my comfort level), I'll save my bike and pants from all that slush and wait for spring.
Unless we have a dry winter, in which case I'll reconsider...
