Stay Warm and Ride: Winter Cycling in the Press

Do it.

On Saturday I rode from NDG to Villeray.  It was sunny, blue, and effing cold.  The snow has been cleared and the streets were just about as navigable as any other time of year.  The only problem, really, is keeping hands and feet warm.  So, big mitts and warm boots should do the trick.  It’s totally do-able. Sure, I wussed out and took the metro back, but I blame that on meeting up with my a certain loved one who has not yet embraced winter riding.  There was a surprising number of people out riding, which was good to see.

No surprise, then, that a few stories about winter cycling have popped up lately.  The Toronto Star chatted with Yvonne Bambrick of the Toronto Cyclists Union about how to navigate Toronto’s winter slush and sleet.  Urban Velo posted the PDF of an article from their latest issue on what you need to survive the cold.  Finally, Med India has a piece marvelling at how Quebec residents brave snow and cold on two wheels.  You might be wondering what Med India is.  Me too.

Hats off (um…toques ON) for those of you riding all winter.
