Hey guys! So, How's commuting this winter? I have seen all over the internet and couple times in this forum that people do not know how to safely ride a bike in winter or are too scared to do so because they think it is too dangerous. Well, yes, it is more dangerous to ride a bicycle in winter, not only because of the snow and ice on the roads but because it gets darker a lot faster in winter than in summer. 70% of all biking accidents happen when it is dark outside because a lot of us do not use any reflectors on our bikes and not even a reflecting clothing. And most of the work ends after 5 PM when it is already dark outside. But that does not mean that you cannot ride to work or school or anywhere else in winter with your bike. So I did some research on Google for those who cannot do it themselves. And there was an active discussion in one of the posts about winter biking. Found a lot of winter biking guides and a lot of posts with different tips. I will add a link to this one and hope no one kills me for it- Basics Of Winter Biking This will make things clear for all of the newbies and maybe even it will be useful for some experienced cyclists.
