How to Survive Winter Behind the Ride

Views: 548

In this episode of Behind the Ride I thought I’d take a look at some of the ways I “try” to survive winter, a time of the year I particularly struggle with. From bike set-up to staying visible and some key items of kit that I’ve found particularly useful. I hope it helps you be safe, seen and comfortable during the darker months of the year.
