Snow Riding Website
Just read my RBR ezine and saw this link for Icebike. http://www.enteract.com/~icebike/ There is a website for EVERYTHING ! Now that my hybrid has become my 2nd bike, I'm tempted to flirt with disaster with my 42 year old bones and ride tomorrow. I can see myself putting screws in my knobbies in the future. I must be forgetting all the crashes on ice delivering newspapers in my youth:D
Go do it. It's hard work at times, but lots of fun. It also helps make you a better rider (if you don't break anything).
This site is also known as http://www.icebike.org.
A lot of it caters to off-road riders and to people who ride on roads with real packed ice.
I would suggest you look at the "Commuting" pages and at "Members" pages.
One good page, with lots of local (to you) information is http://www.bikewinter.org
Take it slowly and cautiously and with fenders, and you will be OK.
My favorite Ice Bike page... http://www.calhouncycle.com/01icehome.html lot's of contraptions and entertainment in the wide open spaces of a MN lake.
I'm tired of wating for the roads to clear. Yesterday I ordered 2 studded bike tires. By next weekend I'll be on the road again!
