On a statistical basis, apparently January 30 is the coldest day of the year in Toronto. For the last couple of years, the city has run a “coldest day of the year ride“. Unlike years past, this time I couldn’t make it, but it was very warm at just below zero around noon. By quitting time, it was still a balmy -3°C, but at least the snow made it feel like winter.
Here I am on the railpath. The studded tires run wonderfully quiet on the fresh snow.
