Cycling in the winter is still fun

Well, winter is here. Time to put away the bike and stare longingly out the window until spring arrives. Right?

Nope! Don’t let a little snow slow you down.

Here is a simple trick: If you want to keep on biking trough the winter, adding cable ties to your tires will give you traction to get through the snow and ice. Just make sure you bundle up properly — protect your feet, hands, face and wear your sunglasses — that snow is bright!

Bike trails are best in the winter. Stay away from icy roads and traffic if you can. Of course, the right bike rack will make traveling to your local bike trails a cinch. Happy cycling!
