I commute every day to work during the summer, rain or shine. Except winter.
I wanna commute trough winter this year, but i need some advice.
I live in Canada aylmer (right next to ottawa) so i can have some really nice days in winter, and i can get 2 feet of snow the next.
There's 2 diferent ways i normaly take to get to work during the summer.
First one is by street, about 9k each way across three main roads (2 or 3 lane streets).
Second way is by a bike path thats about 1k away from my house. 13k each way.
Witch path should i take in winter ?
Should i buy some tires that have less studs that are more offset to the sides and ride on the street. And not ride on snowy days or other bad days.
Or should i get some studded tires with like 300 studs and ride on the bike path in the snow all winter long.
Bike path is never cleaned during winter and people use them for cross-country sking.
