Over the past few months I have become a daily commuter. I have gotten rid of my '78 VW van and decided that anywhere it can take me I can pedal to. The Winter months are upon us and living in the north west where the winters get below the teens, I have had to invest in some good winter gear to sustain. While I was at my local bike shop I was wondering how many people commute on a daily basis during the dead of winter when the temperatures are well below freezing? Also, what are some of the things people do to cope with the cold?
