Riding Through Snow

I think I've got this mostly figured out...

  • Get your butt way back on the seat. You don't want any weight on the front tire, or you'll dig in and you're cooked!
  • Light touch on the handlebars. Let the wheel do what it's going to do, grip is going to come and go, so don't expect to do a lot of steering. Slight motions only or your wheel turns into a plow
  • Low gear and spin. Too much torque will spin your rear wheel, so keep your motion smooth and easy
  • Fall. I'm joking. But it'll happen.
Now that it's spring, it's becoming a fading concern... but I really wanted to get this post in to remind myself in December how to deal with it!
