Riding a bike in the winter is a bit different from the summer. OK, so it's colder. However, so long as you've got sensible clothes on you warm up pretty quickly. It's very pleasant. The air is fresh and the sun, when it shines, is wonderful. Shadows from the low sun in the winter look amazing.
However, you do need the surface to be clear of ice, which it luckily is here.
When I left home this morning it was -2 C ( 28 F ). By the time I was home I had done 78 km and it had warmed to +2 C ( 35 F ).
