Guess nobody in Poland rides in the Snow, so they thought it newsworthy ..
Slow news day?
Insane, I would not ride in this weather period, especially where I live. The real danger is the narrowing roads after heavy snowfall where you really have nowhere to break away to if you're in eminent danger. It's bad enough when I got out for a run, and have no sidewalk or shoulder and keep to the side of the road. I notice alot around where I live most people behind the wheel of a vehicle have NO respect for cyclists, runners, let alone pedestrians. People can barely share the road with each other when driving as it is!
I did a ride a few weekends ago on roads where there was often several inches of snow, and plenty of riders used their regular road bikes with skinny tires. It's impressive what you can do with a road bike.
