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.
