You can still commute in this weather... We do!

Stay warm, but don't over dress. Plan ahead since your commute will take a little longer. Bar Mitts are a favorite of ours to keep your hands warm without having to wear huge gloves and feeling like you have lost control over braking and shifting.

We highly recommend studded tires when the streets are as icy as they are now. Tires start around $60 a tire. If you pay a little more for carbide studs they will last you for many seasons of winter commuting/riding.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to stop in and let us help you feel more comfortable with the idea of riding in winter.

This kind of weather is why I love my folding bike. I can outfit it all ready for winter, but if I lose my nerve, it's really easy to take the bus with my bike, or put it in the car trunk, if I can convince someone to come pick me up.
