Get Out Your Studded Tires and Goggles

February 10, 2016

The temperature is permanently hovering around 25 and you gave up trying to remember the last time you saw the sun. Without a doubt, winter is here.

But a little (or a lot) of snow shouldn’t mean your bike will rest easy on a trainer in the basement. Get out your bar mitts and the studded tires because this Friday, February 12th, is International Winter Bike to Work Day.  

Celebrate year-round cycling and join winter commuters around the world as we “commit to the ride.”

We leave you with a biking poem by Missoula cyclist Nate Biehl:

Oh driver,

When you encounter the cyclist

do not despair or become irate.

Instead, whisper quietly,

“Thank you for the parking space.”
