What is the Slender Fungus up to?

Amazing Surly Troll. I highly Suggest this machine

The strange moon that brought us below zero temperatures

Arriving to work this morning 10 below zero

Slender Fungus ride all the way to 47and back 11 degrees plus

Hellmut's and Ari's amazing Pugsleys. Note my front fender

The Slender Fungus has been busy riding bikes. So the postings have not been consistent. I have finally hit the 400 mile mark for January and have 100 miles to go to meet my goal of 500 miles for the month. I have spent most of my time on the Incredible Mr. Pugsley. I have added a Bontrager Rack, Arkel trunk bag. I also switched to the awesome Surly Open Bars. My Dinotte Lights are great and resist the cold better. My Sorel Boots are working awesome. Bought a great Parka at Old Gravy for 11 bucks. My father-in-law bought me an expedition Wool Sweater from Devold and It is amazing.
Hellmut and I have learned a lot about winter riding. We have made huge improvements compared to last year's choices in equipment. The Surly Pugsley is fundamental in our existence. Riding on Snow, Ice, over impossible surfaces has been a blast. Tire pressure is critical, So the little Schwalbe Pressure Gauge has been my Pal. I will hopefully make it to ride 31 days of 31 in January.

bravo my friend. Im at 390 for the month after the ride this morning. Will be taking the weekend through tuesday off and then hammering to get 500+ for January. Good work! and good tip with the toe warmers in the plastic bag to stop the reaction and reuse those things
