Cross Country Skiing with my bicycle

I love winter when we have a lot of snow! This last week, in Kansas City, Missouri where I live we have had about 13-20 inches, making a dull winter very lively…if you like this sort of thing.

I have been going to the gym a lot, but prefer being outside walking or cycling. Now with all the snow I am able to do my favorite winter sport, Cross Country Skiing.

Right after a good snow, and before the plow trucks and cars muck up the streets I am able to slap on the ski’s and transport myself anywhere.

If you have not tried XC Skiing, you are missing out, it is a lot of fun and a great workout, but as with walking and cycling for transportation, you can go at your own pace. I originally learned how to xcski at boarding school in Cheshire, Connecticut. There were 100 acres of woods with great trails. 

One of the best things about being carfree is getting to use your creative juices to figure out how to get from point A to point B with out the use of a smog belching vehicle.

I love being able to use my bicycle as a ski holder while I ride to Loose Park and other trail heads around the City for some quality Ski time. 

Spring is around the corner, OK way around the corner, but until it arrives I want to play with my ski's.

Tell me about your winter sports on our adjoining carfree American Facebook page! 


  1. Are you kidding - boarding school in Cheshire - what school and year? Carfree family's mom (Annee) graduated Choate (Wallingford), 1988. Winter biking in Oregon reminds me of high school winter sports - swimming - cold and wet, sometimes frozen ;) Thanks for sharing your inspiring winter carfree adventures!

    1. Hi Annee, that is great! I graduated from Cheshire Academy in 1983!

  2. Now, when I say made use of, I’m not counting devices where I had a handful of minutes of hands-on time at a tradeshow. That total consists of devices I spent quality hands-on time with, for a minimum windows 7 ultimate activation key of days and normally weeks or months. In every case, it was lengthy enough to obtain a strong overview in addition to a feeling for the relative strengths and weaknesses of an incredibly wide range of devices.

  3. When compared to Windows 7 Home Premium Product Key, Windows 7 Professional Product Key is outstanding. When will Microsoft ever learn? Keep it simple, attractive, and easy to use. Windows 8 Professional Product Key Most computer users just want the system to work. Windows 7 does this.
    Got my old desktop up and running.
