Free Winter Bike Workshop

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 23

Have you ever noticed those intrepid bicyclists out there on the roads 365 days a year, no matter how low the temperature or how high the snow? Maybe you see them and just think they’re nuts, but many year-round bicyclists will tell you how much they love biking in the cold, citing the old truism, “There is no bad weather – just bad clothing.”

Thanks to a partnership with the City of Newton, MassBike will be holding a free workshop to explain how to keep warm, dry, and comfortable if you choose to bike on some of the more daunting days.

The details:

Where: Newton City Hall, Room 222
1000 Commonwealth Ave.
Newton, MA

When: Thursday, 1/26, 7:00 – 8:00 PM

This workshop is free and open to the public. You can find out more information by clicking here, or emailing [email protected]. We hope to see you there, and out on the streets with amazing bike gear!

    Shameless self-promotion: this is the reason I started my Boston Biker blog ( As the ad says, there’s no magic to it: fenders, wide tires, warm clothing.

    And make it a game! Every time I leave the house I start with the idea that I’m going to ride my bike. Throw in the fact that I’ve gotten home through snow storms way faster than anyone in a car or on the T a few times and it became second nature…
