When do you guys pack up the bike for the winter time? I'm from Chicago so it gets pretty cold and snowy up there!

I live in North Dakota, typical riding season is April-Sep. (sometimes Oct.). My bike is in a heated garage and I will ride it all winter, if the roads are dry, I will ride (prefer the temp to be above 40 degrees F)

My bike have been store probably 2 weeks ago. It's not officially winterize since i haven't done anything to it but there's just too many crash at this time of year and car drivers don't look for bikes. Last time i went for a drive i've been cut really bad twice in probably 20 min!

Last weekend I did a 6 hour round trip where the warmest it got was about 40. 40 degrees in Chicago going about 90 is pretty damn chilly!

I ride all year here in Pittsburgh, just a lot less between Thanksgiving and Easter. If the roads are dry and not too crapped up with salt/cinders and it's above freezing, I'll go out for a hour or two, or maybe even all day if it's really nice (upper 40s). The bike stays parked when it's below freezing.

I am also in North Dakota so the snow is usually the limiting factor. Last weekend I had a short ride and the temp was just below 30. Last year we had very little snow and I was actually able to ride at least once each month which is pretty good for here.
