Snow Riding Website

Just read my RBR ezine and saw this link for 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

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

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

Take it slowly and cautiously and with fenders, and you will be OK.

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!
It's better to cycle through life than to drive by it.
