winter cycling thoughts

Cycling in bad weather can still be fun, you just need to dress properly…

layers are what it's all about in winter cycling

layers are what it’s all about in winter cycling

Turn yourself into a layer cake… under-shirt, shirt, fleece, jacket, leggings, jeans, inner socks, wool socks, gloves, ear-band, balaclava will keep you warm. I can promise if you commute to work this way, you will be wide awake when you arrive!

And for those of you in the holiday spirit, we are set to give away at least two bikes to kids at 2wheels2kids.wordpress.com – here’s what we did last year.

Ride safely – and watch out for dark ice.

  1. Winter cycling is great and I agree that it’s all about clothes (and proper lights on the bike, helmet or both). The only thing I don’t like about it is when there’s fresh snow and there’s no separated cycling lane/track, so that you’ll have to share the road with cars.
    It can be very slippery a layer of fresh snow and not all drivers take this into consideration when they’re passing (or staying too close behind you).

    Do you really bike to work?

    Happy cycling in your winter wear! “LOL” sigh! I’m not even cycling and I look like you…. which is fab, but I’m a girl! I bet Jan looks a lot cuter. Not that you don’t look cute. Okay… quitting while I might be ahead…even, or just slightly behind.

    Luckily for those of us who call Florida home, there’s not too many times that we have to dress in multiple layers to go riding. Then again, anything below 60 degrees is cold to us. Have a great Thanksgiving.
