I'am agree with you for wearing under armor , but what's happen with the smell from the sweat ?

I rike my bike from home to my office every morning (without the weekends) and before time I use the same technique for the sweat as ripanderson902 , but now I just change my bike t-shirt with work shirt and i'm perfect for work. Just wear a backpack for your clean clothes.

It more convenient to bike than use my four wheeler.Its so difficult to drive through all the snow.Its better to put on your warm clothes, and bike around.Its so much easier and fun too.

Biking in the winter is almost the same as in the summer (at least in London),as there is no snow in the winter. You need just wear something warmer and thats it and you can cycling all year long.

The most avid bikers I saw in Europe were in the Netherlands, especially in Amsterdam. Everyone rode bicycles over there even late into the early mornings. Loved it.

I am a huge fan of biking in the winter. But it can be hard to start. It can take a while to figure out the gear you need, clothing, etc...But it's something that is definitely worthwhile!
abguy Posted - 02/08/2017 : 13:17:38
I go everywhere I can by bike. Even in the winter when there is snow on the ground, I still try to get out on my bike when I can.

Exercise is critical to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and I find biking both great for exercise but also helping me calm my mind. My job in roofing can be quite challenging and getting out on my bike helps bring me back to a relaxation state while feeling healthier every day.

When I ride my bike to work I take a somewhat longer path along the river. I frequently see an eagle balanced on the fence along a river overflow lagoon, observing for fish. I have been so near to her that I could practically touch her. Just this is worth the effort. In the way home I take even a longer route so by the time I get home my mood has enhanced. I eat fewer since I do not want to quench the stress and I sleep way better.

I love to travel by bike...the regular exercise helps to maintain good health. However I don't think sweating while riding a bike is a good idea.

Are bicyclists required to have insurance to ride on Denmark's roads or is insurance optional? I am not aware of any states in the U.S.A. that require insurance prior to riding on public roads and highways.

I hate this time of year...Getting colder to bike...UGH

Godwinbanks Posted - 10/11/2016 : 14:30:06
Two major issue we bikers dread in the UK - is the black ice on the road at the winter season and drivers who jump on the road without adequate concern for bikers.There was an increase in road accident fatality last year compared to previous year.

I ride my bike to work and find that I need an extra half hour or so just to rest, cool off, hydrate and get ready for the day. I still think it's worth it.
Pseaver Posted - 06/16/2016 : 07:48:30
True. The "problem" with sweat is when it's allowed to sit and stagnate...ewwww. But if you just wipe it off once you're done cycling you should be ok. But everyone is different I guess.

Another "problem" with summer biking to work is sweat! Not as much a problem in winter.

Having just forgotten my sunglasses on a bike ride in June, I can only say that one of the best things about winter bike riding is--no bugs!
rbrtmerton Posted - 05/08/2016 : 16:07:53
I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes to ride his bike in the winter! It's actually one of my favorite winter activities.

65 degrees. No excuses Mr. Vermont!
jefdanniels Posted - 02/23/2016 : 09:21:59
I live in Northern Vermont and we haven't had much of a winter at all. Good for biking, but bad for skiing.
jnyyz Posted - 02/22/2016 : 17:52:00
although spring is taking it's sweet time to arrive, it's been much easier biking to work this winter than last.

It's not the weather I worry about in winter. It's cars! (But then I guess that's always the case--but it's worse in winter).
pj0311234 Posted - 02/04/2016 : 11:04:52
I guess it's human nature, but people look for any excuse not to bike, walk, etc... Especially weather-related reasons. Obviously, there are times when it's wise to stay indoors, but most of the time it's perfectly ok to be outdoors in inclement weather. No excuses!
bobbytigris Posted - 01/19/2016 : 07:56:54
Biking in winter is a matter of trial and error. Finding the right clothes, hats, gloves, ways to keep your feet warm (my biggest problem). But once you do find the right combination, winter biking is well worth it.
Don S Posted - 12/18/2015 : 17:12:07
Hi Kate
I'm not familiar with London so it would be helpful if you let us know about your biking experience, the traffic on your route, the terrain (hilly, etc.), and the the weather. (Will you be needing to ride in rain and snow conditions?)

Can you recommend me a good city bike? I'm fairly new in London, and I need it to go to work.
Thanks in advance!
