Anyone can ride a bike in the spring or summer. But Marlin Ledin wants to ride his in the dead of winter. So, the Washburn, Wisconsin, musician has built his own blizzard bike. It's got 4-inch-wide tires, hydraulic disc brakes and weighs nearly 60 pounds. He's already gone for a 40-mile winter ride. But time is running out on his snowy adventures. Ledin tells the Daily Press of Ashland he'll be moving to Mexico before the end of the month to work on a new album.
