1 Riding a bike may seem like a warm-weather activity to you. Riding a bike is relaxing and fun, even if a bug flies into your mouth once in a while. However, some people like the challenge of riding on snow or ice. Snowbikers or icebikers are a rugged group of cyclists who love adventure and who don't mind the cold.
2 Snowbiking, or icebiking, fans try it for different reasons. Some of them do not want to own a car. Others love the fresh, frosty air. They think it is fun to have people in cars stare at them with round, shocked eyes and round, open mouths. Some people take this winter sport to extreme levels of competition. In any case, snowbikers have to face some big challenges.
3 Bikers must be ready to face many kinds of terrain as they cycle during the winter months. The biggest risk to snowbikers is black ice. Black ice is a thin layer of ice over a road. It might seem safe, but experienced bikers have learned that if they try to put on their brakes while crossing black ice...SPLAT! Soon, they are sliding along the road or down the hill. Studded tires are the best equipment to help snowbikers roll safely across black ice.
