I've seen quite a few Alberta folks on this forum and welcome the new format that might make it easier to meet for rides/get togethers in the new year. I recall pulling my bikes out in January and February other years here in Calgary - but this year looks like a total bust. I have never seen so much snow and ice as this year. Two years ago I rode to the bike show in January as well. Oh well at least we have that to look forward to before we go totally stir crazy inside our houses instead of being out on the road.
