Is it ok to wear a big winter coat while riding in the winter?
Hi, is it ok to wear a big winter coat while riding in the winter? Last time I wore my coat, I was communting to work which is supposed to be a half and hour ride in the summer, but turned out to be almost a hour ride in the winter. My heart was pounding. I had to stop a couple of times to catch my breath. I was riding on the sidewalk which is coated with snow and ice. It was a very bumpy ride. I tried to ride in the street where there was no snow or ice, but it seemed like I was slowing traffic down. All the cars was going around me. It just seems like it to hard to ride in the winter, but for me to get to work on time I have to ride my bike or walk , because the busses do not run that early in the morning, and I can't be late. What should I do? Please help. :confused:
