Helpful Winter Biking Links

I would never have been brave enough to attempt biking through the ice and snow without the helpful information I found on the internet. That coupled with the knowledge that real, normal people were out there doing it gave me the courage to give it a try.

These links were the ones that have been key in making my winter of biking doable and fun.

Winter Biking 101
This is one of the first websites I found and the one that made me start to believe that biking through the winter was possible.

Bike Forum – Winter Biking
I spent a few afternoons reading through this forum and there is tons of great info to be found. Being an open forum, however, there is some advice that seems a bit off to me, so I do take it with a grain of salt.

All Seasons Cyclist
Jim introduced me to this website and I am not sure whether to thank him (because it has a ridiculous amount of great info) or never listen to him again (because I spent an afternoon reading through all of the posts about bike lights  and now I want all of those cool lights for myself).

Bike Winter
This website has some cool DIY tips which I was going to take a stab at…until I realized my sewing machine was broken.

Winter Bicycling: How to Enjoy It
A nice article with an overview of many aspects of winter biking.

Icebike
So much great information from clothing to bike handling tips. There are some epic winter biking stories to read as well.

Peter White Cycles
Great descriptions of different models of Nokian and Schwalbe Studded Tires and advice on how to use them properly.

I am sure I am forgetting a few of the websites I have been to and learned from and I am sure there are more out there, so if you know of a great winter biking website that should be listed, let me know!

  1. All Season Cyclist hasn’t returned as far as I know. Dealing with family health issues with his son. Hope he returns soon with good news.

  2. I have a slew of cycling blogs I follow also. Always good to learn of more. It was a BALMY 63 degrees this morning on my ride into work…. I think winter is over here in the Carolinas. 🙂

      • Call me crazy, the colder the better…. I’m sure folks who see me riding in these cold temps (from the comfort of their warm cars) think I’m insane. I like to keep them guessing.

      • Indeed. Most mornings when I bike to work I see the same milk trucks on their way to pick up milk and as the weather started to turn colder in the fall I am sure they expected me to quit biking at some point. But I didn’t 😉
