In this edition of the OOFD newsletter, Kyle Millns, Bryan McClaran, and Jeremy Bloyd-Peshkin chat about winter riding. Three Logan Square residents who race for Intent Strength & Multisport, commute year-round, and host the non-suburban version of their team’s group ride. Additionally, Jeremy spent 18 months living in a research station in Antarctica.
Two of them, Kyle and Bryan, host the Frostbite 50, a roughly fifty-mile ride that occurs on the first Saturday in February. This infamous ride crosses state lines twice, visits three breweries, and may or may not have a rolling bar! They recorded a conversation for us while driving to Aurora, IL, where they were (not surprisingly) gearing up to ride fat bikes in 10-degree weather.
Let’s see what they have to say about winter cycling, and the sheer awesomeness that is the FB50:

Pedal along ancient Shorelines, where woolly mammoths once trekked and American Indians footed through native lands. Meander and traverse through prairies and oak savannas, under leafy green canopies and wide eyed vistas. Witness the brilliance of engineering architects as you roll through canyoning towers of stone and steel marvels built by the mighty hands of men from around the world. This well deserved bike adventure is as bright as the gleaming blue waters of lake michigan coupled with rural farmland roads, historic towns, and rolling rivers. It will refresh the needing adventure.
