Cold Weather Destinations

A cold weather cycling destination can be anywhere you might think up. Home to a warm house could be just that good enough, but for those of us who like to ride with our head up and are looking for adventure in our rides, New England has many.
I always want a few details in the arrival of the destination to be somewhat the same. The stopover needs to be both a warm spot and a safe place to park the bicycle. We are lucky here in Southern New England to have many.
Meeting at a coffee shop for a cup works. You usually have the windows to watch the bicycles and warm drinks to bring you back to life. Its always a good spot to start a ride for the simple reason of being able to wait where its warm.
One of my all time favorite Cold Weather Destinations is the Wellesly Collage Green House's.

On the Wellesly campus, the houses are open to the public from 8:00-4:00 every day of the year. The perfect time to go is when its really cold out and really sunny. A little bicycle ride to the tropics. This has been a favorite of ours for years and although never crouded, usually attracts interesting folks to meet while there.
Over the next couple of months, I will be spotlighting spots of interest to ride to and keep you on the road and off the trainer.
Here are the Photos.
