Lacking motivation to put on layer upon layer of clothing for a freezing cold, wet, dark bike commute this year? Well, if you are the type of person that lives for challenges like that, there is a group of like-minded winter cyclists who have joined the Icy Bike Winter Commuting Challenge (Facebook page). I found out about these cold-weather-braving folks via Cyclelicio.us, and if I didn’t live in the oh-so-temperateland of Tucson, I’d totally join! But I don’t think desert winter riding qualifies, since that’s the best time to ride down here. The Icy Bike Winter Commuting Challenge isn’t a competition, rather a communal way to inspire others to enjoy the ride no matter what the conditions. If you are planning to participate, check out Bike Tech Shop for bike lights for those dark, winter rides. Happy riding all winter long!Icy Bike Winter Commuting Challenge from ChainRing Films on Vimeo.
