Biking the Freeze Where You Live

It’s time for another Streetsblog Network slide show. This time, we asked to see your pictures of people biking in snow and cold. Once again, you came through, big time.

Some of the photos make cycling in winter look divine. Others make it look brave. All of them prove that a drop in temperature is no reason to leave the bike at home.

Enjoy, and be inspired.

Thanks to all who sent in submissions: Dottie at Let’s Go Ride a Bike, Ellie Kingsbury, Dave Feucht of Portlandize, BicyclesOnly, Colin Murphy, Swany, Michael Kodransky of ITDP Europe, Transportation Alternatives, M.V. Jantzen, Xander N’Dante, Scott Redd, Sebastian Niehaus, Randy Rasa, Mike Lydon of The Street Plans Collaborative, Mitchell Nussbaum, Ryan Kucera and Dave Johnson.
