Safe Winter Riding

Last week we talked about staying warm and dry while biking in wet weather. But winter riding is about safety as well as comfort. Ash Kelly of Mountain Equipment Co-op gave us some tips on gearing up your bike, while Sandra Allen (pictured below) shared some techniques for safe riding during on dark, wet and/or cold days. Sandra teaches a safe winter riding course through VACC. She goes into workplaces to teach this one hour course.

One of my favourite finds this year is the USB-charged bike light. No more fading double A batteries!
