That's right! We've got a new shirt- On sale through the weekend for only 13 bucks!!! you can get that here...

And now for the 3rd and final installment of Cole's Winter Riding Tips series!

The key to winter riding is balance. You can’t lean into your turns like you normally would. Keep your weight over the bike and take corners slow. Try to stay on the seat as much as possible too- the weight over the back tire gives it more traction!

If there is a lot of snow on the ground you can leave half of your base layer of clothing at home because there is nothing like peddling through 6 inches of wet snow to get your body temp up quick!

I remember once I rode to work in 8 inches of fresh snow, was all bundled, up and sweated through two layers and thought I was going to die.

If it's really cold, Vaseline on your face will help stop wind burn. I know it sounds awful but windburn is much worse.

That’s all I have for now... feel free to leave a comment over at our facebook page for now (we finally figured out blogger's comments section is screwed up. nice) with any tips or questions you have and I'll try my best to answer them.
