CYCLING IN WINTER. The countryman having his pure air and hi? green fields always at hand (says The Cyclist "i has no incentive to ride, and consequently we believe if a census could be taken we should find that there are more winter riders in large towns than in the country. It is better to cease bicycling in the winter than become tired of it, and the enjoyment of winter riding is undoubtedly largely, if not entirely, a question of personal tempera- ment. Physical strength has not' very much to do with it, as many of the strongest and hardest riders are the leasi inclined to turn out in winter. In fact, « man must be a very weakling if with a low gear, good bicycle, and good tyres he cannot ride to his enjoy- ment and benefit in wintertime. Others relinquish the cycle for the winter months because they think it beneficial for them to have a rest. We can only say that if this be the case it is proof that during the summer months they have ridden too hard. If bicycling is to do its votaries its utmost amount of good it should never be indulged in to excess, and the need for a winter's rest is a proof that it has been overdone; not, we may be perfectly certain, in 999 cases out of 1000 in distance, but in speed, or attempts at speed.
