Not everyone is blessed with beautiful West Coast riding weather this time of year. Even riders in some countries are soaking up the sun in their summer season right now! Fortunately, for Why We Ride fans, in colder climates, that has not stopped them from doing what they love. These dedicated riders don’t let anything stand between them and their love for riding. Not even the snow! These people are taking on a new meaning of snow sports with “Ice Racing”.

Ferdinand San Pedro from Southern Wisconsin Ice Racing Association posted this photo of him taking advantage of the weather ice racing on a quad.

Alan Beaulieu shared that the Northeast isn’t affected by the weather either. He wrote, “We live for ice racing in the north east also.”

We’ve been featuring a lot of your photos from rides throughout the United States lately, so we thought we’d go abroad this week and take a look at some of the places you’ve ridden in other countries.

Roman Cylkowski’s photo of the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa gets us started with our virtual world tour.

Matt Jenkins posted this picture of a quiet country lane lined by hedgerows in Southern England. That single-lane road is probably for traffic heading in both directions. Watch out!
