Winter Biking - a Kid's Perspective (age 10 )

Winter Biking for a kid is not fun every day. You have to get up early and wear warm clothes but when you get to school you always steam to death. If you have a box bike make sure you don't put the cover on if you are too tall or you stoop down and your neck hurts when you get out of the bike. And always try to convince your parents to let you ride your own bike.
When you ride your own bike in winter avoid ice or you will fall even if you have stud tires. Wear good gloves when you go riding. Preferably ones that are waterproof and windproof.  Wear a hat under your helmet or your ears will fall off. If you can, wear a snowboarding helmet because they are insulated.
Try to take the fastest route you can or else you will be late for school. Test out a route before you go on it on a real day when you have to go to school. 


  1. This is my favorite article about winter biking bar none!! Awesome. I especially like the advice about wearing a hat under your helmet 'or your ears will fall off'. Perfect!

  2. I think the best part is the part about how you should ride your oun bike
