Winter Riding Wednesday – Bike Safe
My teammate, Myron, is back once again with a great new series that will run each Wednesday in December. In September, Myron posted up some awesome articles in a series he called “Mac Mondays” and I’m very stoked to have him back once again for this one. As you know, I’m not a winter riding kind of guy and this is why I escaped it and came to the Southern States. But I know there are a lot of riders who already are (or would like to) ride through the winter…so Myron is here to help you out with “Winter Riding Wednesdays”.
Welcome to the first installment of “Winter Riding Wednesdays.” Kip Luce (from Saskatoon Saskatchewan’s Bike Polo group) gave a presentation to staff and students at Walter Murray Collegiate in November on how to get ready for the winter bike riding season (and Myron from Loving The Bike was there to film it). Kip is a year-round cyclist and is a knowledgeable guy when it comes to winter biking.
In part one, Kip gives a few tips on safety, equipment and cornering on snow/ice. The main points to remember from this “Winter Biking Wednesday” bike school (look for #bikeschool on Twitter every Thursday evening) are to be visible, pick your route, go slow and be patient. Enjoy your (winter) ride.
