Year-Round Rider in a Winter City
Leslie Parker – Edmonton
I began to ride year-round as a challenge to myself. If someone tells me that something is impossible, I feel a need to prove them wrong. A few upgrades later (studded tires are worth every penny) and I discovered that biking year-round is not only possible but fun. My pant size went down and my wallet grew with the gas money I wasn’t spending six months of the year. I’ve even learned to time my commute to coincide with the local dog walker. All in all, I would never go back to being a daily driver!
