I will ride in snow, I am new to the area but believe the roads get plowed. I hate riding in the rain, but do now when its not too bad. Hopefully I will not ride on ice. I will put fenders on the bike.
I do not understand the need for wider tires. Snow tires for a car are more narrow then normal, but have far deeper tread. The idea idea is to decrease the surface that touches the road so that there is more pressure where the tire actually makes contact. I would think the same would hold true for a bike.
I live in south eastern Connecticut, we do not get much snow.
