Are you curious about riding your bicycle through the winter? Have you ever tried it? Do the weather and conditions intimidate you? Then this is the workshop for you. From how to dress, how to maintain your bicycle in the winter and where to park it, to dealing with winter weather challenges on the road and planning your route, this workshop will also include a tutorial on how to make studded snow tires and cheap home-made fenders for snow and slush. This is a very in-depth look at the logistics of actually commuting through the winter in Central Vermont. You will leave equipped with knowledge, inspiration, AND a winter commuting resource booklet! Don’t miss it.
