A time in the year
where the earth is furthest from the sun in it's revolution around the sun But alas! This is a common misconception. Winter is caused by the rays of the sun no longer being perpendicular to the surface of the earth in the area you live, which causes them to bounce off more or something - it's about sun ray angle, not distance from the sun. This causes colder temperatures and make me want to ride when I can't which sucks.
