Winter Riding

Boise’s abundance of bicycle infrastructure and relatively mild winters make year-round biking possible. A prepared cyclist can commute and recreate in comfort all winter long. Here are some things to keep in mind.

Prepare Your Bike:

  • Perform an ABC quick check to make sure your bike is ready to ride (or bring it to the CLC and have us do it).
  • Install fenders to stay clean and dry
  • Use lights to stay visible
  • Lube your chain
  • Use fat, knobby tires

Prepare Yourself:

  • Wear a helmet!
  • Dress warmly
  • Wear bright, reflective clothing

Riding Tips:

  • Go slow
  • Don’t lean into the corners, stay upright.
