I have put plenty of miles on my Specialized bike since getting it about 8 years ago and especially the last 4 years I have become a year round rider. In winter if there is snow and ice on the road I don’t go but most of winter the snow and ice is kept off the roads, so I’m out there. I dress more or less as I would for cross country skiing- layers and nothing too heavy. You definitely see things you don’t notice when driving. Cyclists have become a subject of my paintings and happily my bicycle paintings have found an audience.
