A Little Winter Riding Advice

1) Read this bit of useless drivel. (That's a link that should work.)

2) Thank Joe Doucheray for heating you up for your next winter ride.

3) Now take out your bike. Don't hug the ice berm at the side of the street -- take the lane. Drivers are often scared and barely in control of their cars during winter. Don't leave them enough room to believe they can eek by you, dangerously buzzing you in the process. If it's sketchy you're safer exerting your right to the lane. The majority of drivers need more practice with patience anyway.

4) Ride tall. Ride proud. And drop ol' Joe a "happy new year" message if you're so inclined.
