A lot of people think that cyclists who bike in the winter must be crazy. But are they? Are they really?
A BlogTO columnist tried to answer this question earlier this week by posting a story named “Do You Have to Be Crazy to Ride Your Bike In The Winter?” so you’d think they’d actually try winter cycling (like Catherine Porter of the Star did with Yvonne Bambrick of the Bike Union), but instead they just asked a few people at a U of T BikeChain workshop why they bike in the winter.
- Regular tires are fine.
- Some days are too cold.
- Ride it out.
- Avoid splashing.
- Be prepared to hit the ground.
- Dress appropriately.
- Be good to your bike.
In my opinion, the list shows that you don’t have to be crazy to bike in the winter in Toronto… you just have to be very prepared.
