    I'd ride with studded tires, since that deals with a known danger. Cover known issues as best as you can - leaves your mind free for the unexpected situations.

    I can't think of anything. I probably annoy someone, but I don't know who or how. I ride in shorts/jeans with a high viz vest, panniers and fenders. Bicyclists overtake me and keep going, so I don't...
