    I had to laugh when I saw a Castelli jersey at work (MEC) and in the description it said it was for "cool weather cycling." So far so good - it was a wool blend, long sleeve thing - but the product...

    Car accidents, I am guessing? I feel safer on my bike (with studded tires) than I do in a car when the winter turns ugly. I have better grip, generally - can't count the number of times I have passed...

    They really don't, unfortunately. Found that one out the hard way. (Then I keep trying it anyway, every year, and ouch). There's just not enough thickness to the ice for the studs to bite.

    Rule # ___

    As shared by my co-worker and fellow commuter James P., in praise of fenders for city bikes:
