I figured I would try to commute through the winter for the first time. We just got our first taste of winter weather. Temps in the single digits and snow packed and icy roads.
I went out briefly yesterday as a trial run and I'm just not sure I enjoy riding when my biggest concern is trying to stay upright. Plus I've had a couple hip replacements and don't want to fall if I can help it. How do you negotiate up hills when you have no traction? And I live in the mountains so hills are everywhere. Would studs do that much good? Or do you just walk part of the time?
I really want to do this but I'm not too confident at this point. Can somebody talk me into it?
I can handle the cold, that's not a concern.
