Cyclists from across the city will celebrate winter cycling on Wednesday January 30th by joining a group ride on the (statistically) coldest day of the year. Presented by Cycle Toronto in partnership with the City of Toronto and BIXI Toronto, the Coldest Day of the Year Ride is a short, car-free ride leaving from [...]
If you are a fair-weather cyclist extending your riding reach, you might be surprised to notice that a lot of cyclists who ride in all weather situations continue to be cavalier about proper lighting. They also ignore the little bits of extra reflective gear that keep us visible to others in low light, bad weather, [...]
It’s April, spring is (almost) here, but I want to take a blog post to highlight a very good series of posts done by Hyedie over at the Cupcake Ride blog… the Winter Rider interview series with Cupcake Riders who ride all year long. She chatted with them about why they love riding and what [...]
Toronto News: 2011 Hero: Bixi Toronto [Torontoist] When Bixi Toronto launched in May, we were surprised at how quickly we fell for the sturdy, practical rides that popped up at solar-powered stations across the downtown core—turns out that the bike-share system appeals to even habitual TTC users and bike owners. Stormy when you leave home? Take the [...]
Spacing continues their great “Street Scene” series of artistic posts today with Jerry Waese‘s “Winter Cyclist“:

Winter is here, but that’s no reason to stay inside (although hot chocolate and roaring fires are definitely a good time). Whether you’re thinking about biking to work this winter, or considering some fun recreational rides to feel like a “True Canadian“, battling the elements, we’ve put together some Winter Biking photos from the past [...]

Over on Claire’s Fletcher Five blog, she talks about making sure her hands and face are warm as the weather cools down: I’m going to need some mittens. Probably several pairs, as I’m prone to losing stuff. And something to keep my nose and cheeks cozy. And legwarmers. The list goes on… A question for [...]
This past Saturday saw the Coldest Day of the Year Ride, and after a very mild January, the weather co-operated with -17 weather for the large group of cyclists who came out to ride the waterfront. This post has photos from myself, Duncan, and Jnyyz… you can click each of these photos (just a few [...]
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 [...]
Catherine Porter at the Toronto Star learned a bit about winter cycling from Yvonne Bambrick of the Toronto Cyclists Union… while the article title makes it sound like an article about biking in winter (and a bit of it is), it’s mainly a piece about the need at City Hall for cycling lobbyists (like Yvonne) [...]
There’s a pretty good discussion going on in the “How To” Group regarding making sure your winter bike stays clean if you are using it in the winter time. Bikeroo has posted some pretty funny photos of people who are rather, um… extreme *cue rock guitar wailing* in keeping their bikes clean: There are also [...]
