Winter Bike Essentials
Dress in layers to easily add or remove articles of clothing, depending on your comfort level during your ride. Remember if you are warm before you take off you will likely overheat on your ride.
Lights For Your Bike
Adding lights to your bike increases your ability to be seen by drivers, pedestrians, and other cyclists and improves your visibility on your rides when the sun dips below the horizon.
Fuel Your Ride
Your body works hard during the winter, trying to keep you warm. That is why proper nutrition during the winter is essential. We also recommend staying hydrated throughout your ride, as well as bringing a snack with you for extra fuel.
Clean Your Bike
Bike maintenance often gets overlooked during the winter months but wet roads and trails can take their toll on your bike parts. Be sure to clean and lubricate the moving parts on your bike to prolong the life of those important components.
