Cyclists! Get Winter Ready / Paul Hogan
It’s that time of year again. Winter is closing in and with it the temptation to ditch the bicycle and revert to the bus, train or car to get to work. But with the right preparation, there’s no reason why commuting by bicycle can’t be a year round activity. The health and wellbeing benefits alone make this a great option, not to mention the cost savings. However, it is of the utmost importance that those that choose to continue commuting by bicycle understand the elevated safety risks that they are subject to during the winter period. Darker days, harsher weather, rougher road conditions – these are some of the key factors to be aware of and take action to manage. For more information on getting Winter ready click here.
