Snowy weather tips for cyclists


The London Cycling Campaign advise:-

“If you are cycling in the snow, ride slowly and use the central, gritted portion of the road where possible. Knobbly tyres are more effective than slicks.

Avoid using your front brake, which may cause you to slip, and take particular care when negotiating snowy side roads, which may be impassable by bicycle due to drifted snow and people building snowmen”.
