Poll: What kind of winter riding do you do?

Well, results are in for First Tracks 2008. 18 of you brave year-rounders have put dibs on riding to work your first work day in 2008. That's better than I'd thought! Two of you are ambivalent, and that's okay!

About once per week, I try to publish a new poll for readers to take. It gives you guys something to do, and helps me figure out what kind of people actually take the time to read my ramblings. Everyone loves a poll!

Now, let's see what you've got in store for winter. I hope I didn't miss any of the obvious choices. Winter seems to be popular only for year-round commuters, cyclocross racers, off-roaders and occasionally obsessive-compulsive riders who will take the bike out on the road whenever it's safe to do so. A few of you guys are lucky enough to live where it doesn't get too bad during the winter. If you're south of the equator, no cheating by telling us what you're doing right now. Tell us what you do in July!

Most riders just put the bike up for winter, which is fine. Some choose to cross-train at the gym. Others choose to take spin classes or put their bike on rollers. And then there are those of us who just like to indulge. (Mmmm, Pie!)

So let's see what you're up to this winter.

As usual, to take the poll, you have to visit my site if you're going through RSS. The poll will be in the upper right-hand corner.

Be sure to check out the previous polls.

Noah, I don't know if it's me (mozilla firefox browser) or something on my computer, but the numbers on the poll seem hard to read for the poll results. Is there a way to change the numbers to black or make a change on my end to make them more "readable"?

I know. It picks its own colors and I can't change them. I could edit the colors on the results of closed polls with photoshop easily enough. I'm the same as you. I have to squint to read them. I think it has to do with my color scheme.

Just hold down the left mouse button and drag across the poll and they turn black on white.
