Winter Cycling - Why Should I?

If you’re not a winter-loving person, cold weather is no fun no matter how you get around. And since you’re going to bundle up regardless, rather than wait for your car to heat up, shiver at the bus stop, or sardine yourself onto the subway, why not warm your body up and ride instead? It’s a great way to stay active through the winter and get some sunlight into your eyes.

#bikewinterview: Michaela

Dr. Michaela Beder is an outreach psychiatrist whose work focuses on serving people who are marginalized. On a snow-free but chilly day, we had the chance to meet and talk about how riding a bike year-round complements her clinical and community activism work - and keeps her mind and body healthy during the busiest times.

#bikewinterview: Intelliware

We visited Intelliware’s bike-friendly office on a sunny Wednesday and spoke with three of the team’s year-round riders: Cesar Farell, Bruno Schmidt, and Peter Davison. Here’s what they had to say about the joys of starting and ending the day by pedalling, keeping fingers and toes warm, and some of the great amenities Intelliware offers to incentivize commuting by bike (hint: secure indoor bike parking!).

#bikewinterview: Léa and her hardy winter bike

Léa is a busy PhD student at the University of Toronto who works alongside Bike Host, Toronto's cycling mentorship program for newcomers, for her research on gender and cycling. Having grown up just outside of Montréal, Léa knows a thing or two about deep winter. Read on to find out how she built up a sturdy winter bike, three key winter riding accessories, and what she wishes the City would do expand our winter cycling network.
