Nothing keeps you feeling more alive than staying on your bike all four seasons! It's a great way to stay connected to the outdoors and the city you live in. And, it's really not as hard as you might think!
Many think the winter cyclist is "hardcore." Well, we're here to change the narrative. At Curbside, we look to the cyclists of Northern Europe, who make the bike lane a fashion show of beautiful wool coats and cashmere scarves.
These cyclists aren't hardcore at all. If anything, they are keeping warm while cutting through gridlock; saving money and keeping a rosy glow to their cheeks! Do these cyclists ride everyday? Heavens no! On those super snowy or icy days they rev up the car, hail a taxi, take the transit, or perhaps walk instead. Winter cycling isn't about proving something to yourself, it isn't a sport. Winter cycling is really just the same as summer riding, but more bundled up!
So, how to get started? Well, to start you will need a small amount of gear - mostly for your bike.
