Winter Commutes Down 54%

As I type, it's 11 degrees, and I feel cold... and I wonder in amazement at this statistic from Strava. According to their statistics for 2014, Winter commutes decreased 54%, compared to summer commutes. For me thats pretty good, for sure riding in the cold and wet, is not fantastic. For sure, those who use Strava to record their commutes are more likely to be dedicated cyclists, so perhaps the statistic is not going to be reflective of the general population. But well done to all these commuters, it is an admirable statistic.
