I live in the DC metro area and this will be my first winter commuting. My commute is mostly on MUPs and some road riding. Currently I ride a road bike with 28s but I will soon be getting a single speed cyclocross bike to handle my commutes. Most people I see post about studded tires live in areas that get lots of snow but DC is relatively mild on that front. My main concern is ICE, especially since I am commuting around 6 am. I'd love to hear from people either in DC or other areas with similar winters.
