Riding your bike in the cold and snow can be challenging, but if you plan and dress for it, you can successfully ride through the winter. Here are a few key areas to think about:

  • Safety
  • Planning your ride and the route that you plan to take
  • Dress for the conditions
  • What kind of bike/equipment you need
  • Maintaining your bike so that it operates in both the cold and slushy weather
