Next time you're in western New York, stop by the Buffalo Blue Bicycle workshop. They're a charity that takes in bikes people don't want anymore, fixes them up, and lends/sells them for free/cheap.

In the past couple years, I've given away three bikes, one of which I bought expressly for that purpose.

But no, it's too cold to ride. With the increase in frontal area and encumberance from all the extra clothing, and the higher rolling resistance and air density, and the fact that two wheels + ice don't mix, I'd rather just walk or get in my gas-guzzling cage.
