The effects of the transitional seasons are felt by cyclists from all walks of life. Whether you're a 'cross racer, a criterium sprinter, or a weekend warrior, you've no doubt had the regrettable experience of being caught unprepared in volatile late fall or early spring weather.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
