Time off in Portland

As usual, Portland OR is full of crafty and inventive bike art. I guess the endless gloom and rain leaves you with a lot of time on your hands.

I was always curious how portlanders consistently bike through a constant cold and rainy winter even with the best fenders and rainy winter gear. Over the past week that I've been here, the temp has been in the 30's and 40's; downright tropical coming from New York which is apparently under two feet of snow.

If the temperature stayed like this all winter, I'd have no problem dealing with constant wet pants.
