help me help my bro-in-law start commuting
He's very interested, but has some legitimate concerns.
He lives in a mountain town that pretty much has snow constantly on the ground for several months. He's got an old mtb that we're going to work on.
He'll be commuting six miles almost exclusively on a MUP, so that's cool.
I commute in nice weather almost exclusively, so I'm not sure what to advise him on. Are knobbies enough or should we invest in studded? Any advice on clothing, like balclava, gloves and such? Should I just tell him to dress like he's going skiing? (I think he might be too hot) Other advice or comments?
