Snow Riding

Most important lesson I’ve learned for Winter riding is to stay warm.  Bar-Mitts or something similar to keep your hands warm goes a LONG way in making for a fun ride.  Riding in snow is a big challenge, especially for new riders who are still not 100% confident in their skills.  The two biggest things […]
