5th year of winter riding on a Trek Navigator 2.0 Bion X assisted E bike studded tires and the works

Ryan

This is my 5th or 6th year riding during the winter.
Other then taking it easy, I don't do anything special.

My bike remains the same as to what I'm riding now. I don't wear anything special, except on super cold days I'll wear maybe an extra sweater and track pants under my jeans.

I concur with Ryan. It's not rocket science. In fact, it's fun! Here are my tips: http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2008/12/24/winter_bikecommuting/

I'm with Ryan and Joshua. Nothing special - just Earbags(TM), good mitts, extra layers, waterproof Keen hiking boots, snot rocket receptacles or launching aids, and dreams of April 2011 :-)

I too have been a winter rider for some 20+ years. Nothing special other then warm clothes and lobster mitts, and a good helmet liner.

We ride until the snow comes. Headband under helmet, good gloves, light winter jacket, stretchy pants. It's a nice time to ride. We also ride in KW Santa Claus parade. Join us! Sat. Nov. 20 meet 9:30 a.m. at King and University behind TreeHuggers banner. See past parade ride videos in November archives on www.bikeforest.com

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
