Hello from Canada

I am a 55 years old male who commutes daily and rides recreationally year round in my hometown of Edmonton Alberta. I started daily cycling June of 2019 and my only regret is that I didn't start sooner! I bought my 1st mountain bike over the winter . I am looking to learning more about this type of riding.

Welcome to Bike Forums Glenn.

Winter cycling in Edmonton? You're made of sturdier stuff than I am.

Hi there! Year-round rider? You should visit the Winter Cycling sub-forum.

Welcome to Bike Forums! Fellow year round rider here as well, winter weather doesn't bother me much... granted, I do live in Florida though.

It must be a dry cold. Haha.

But yeah, winter riding is tough - on both rider and bike. Gear up.
