5. I want to participate, but I'm unsure about biking in the winter.

  • Stay warm while biking in winter by wearing extra layers and clothing items. Our top recommendations are (1) hats and gloves, (2) warm socks that wick moisture, and (3) face protection.
  • With the shorter days, we also recommend wearing something reflective. This will help you be more visible while riding. Bike on!
