This time of the year is the toughest for me. The changing from daylight savings to standard time means more darkness in the evening, encompassing cold and wet weather, and knowledge that it won't be warm for about four more months.

Last winter, we got an awesome deal on air fare which made my life long desire to travel to Iceland possible. I spend many rainy, cold Sunday afternoons last winter pouring over Google maps and websites figuring out where we would go in Iceland. Having the goal of cycling in Iceland also made it easier for Melissa and I to get out for rides in the middle of winter knowing that, in some cases, this is what the weather in Iceland would be like.
