Bicycles in traffic in Winter. I had never seen this type of
behavior until the last four years or so. It might have something
to do with the price of gasoline but I really don't know. I live in
Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada and we have ugly winters here.
Three lane streets in summer become two lane streets in the
winter, and two lane streets in summer become one lane streets
in the winter due to the sheer volume of snow. This winter we only
had one week in the -50c range, but several in the -30c to -45c
range, and months in the 0c to -30c range...
A two wheeled vehicle with 1"-2" wide tires has very little
stability and very little traction, and are a danger to themselves &
anyone else that comes near them. Is this just a local phenomenon,
or is this type of behavior widespread? With the wheel ruts on most
streets, the cars have dificulty swearving or stopping, let alone a
person on a bicycle.
