The Art of Riding in the Rain

Bike-riding is easy when the weather is warm

Wasn’t that a great summer for riding?  The endless sunshine and warm temperatures meant getting on your bike was easy.  If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve been cycling to work and feeling great - both about your fitness level and what you’ve been doing for the planet.

Switching from Summer to Fall

Now that Fall is here, we’re switching those lazy afternoons and late sunsets for short, northern winter days - not to mention the days and nights of liquid sunshine that keep beautiful BC green!

Making the transition

In order to keep up your great riding-to-work habit, you’re going to have to make some changes. You’ll need warmer, waterproof clothes, lights and other safety gear, and probably some other help to figure out how to keep riding.
