Putting the bike away? Yay or Nay?

I wanted to see how many people put their bikes away during this time of the year through the winter. I moved to Houston not long ago from NYC and have yet to experience a Houston "winter"

Do you guys put your bikes away and when? It seems to me like the fall has been a "rainy" season here. June, July, August were hot as but it barely rained in my part of town.

Lemme know y'all.

Coldest we've had Houston in say the last...3 years was, maybe 28 for a few hours.

SO in short, barring hurricane/monsoon... ride all year round if your inclined.

Sometimes it rains a lot and sometimes it doesn't. Couple years ago we went almost an entire year without a drop of rain. In my opinion this time of year IS the riding season. You may get a few weeks of chilly weather during the day but other than that it stays pretty comfortable during the day this time of year.

It is really strange, it was so dry when I was here in the summer. Now it cools down a little bit and it rain almost daily. The temp is perfect but the rain is really me off.

You can usually ride your bike year round down here, there might be SOME mornings where it's in the 20's but when the sun comes out it pops right back up to the 50's.

Putting the bike away? Yay or Nay?

I was always more worried about our heat. You can gear up for the cold

what kind of Yankee question is that, oh wait I am a Yankee. year round riding here. Rain bothers some not others, your choice on that, and do not complain about the rain we need it. all the northern and western transplants using it. it is not bad here once you have been here five plus years

Rain suit + winter gloves = year round riding.

only time I keep the bike "put away" is when there's ice on the ground.

My "off season" here is the 2-3 months around August. Even then, there is no need to put bikes into storage like up north. I still ride in the hottest months, just not regularly.

The cooler weather makes great justification to ride ATGATT.
