Riding a regular roadbike without fenders in winter. Don't you have real winter?

I have always wondered the same thing when people post their "winter bike". I suppose if you live where winters just mean more rain that would be fine (though I'd still want fenders). For me winter means 35c knobbys with studs, I don't trust skinny tires to handle all the sand, salt, and ice.

In Bristol there are maybe 2 weeks of the year with snow. And mostly it melts within 24h, so no need for studded tyres. But there is plenty of rain and wind, and rain a 2-5 degreees gets very cold, so either Markyboy is super hard and does not like group rides, enjoys spending time on his turbo trainer or will be getting some mudguards at some point.
