Studded Tires for Your Bike


While Portlanders are a hearty, bicycle-riding bunch we don't often have to deal with riding in snow and ice.  But Minnesotans, Alaskans, and Canadians - they deal with the frozen stuff the way we deal with rain. 

So in search of information on biking in the frosty climes I found the website IceBike (thanks to Elly over at  It has lots of good info on riding techniques and equipment to make snow biking fun and safe(r?). 

Like studded bicycle tires.  Pretty cool, huh?!  I don't think I'll rush out and buy a pair (MAX is cheaper and easier) but it makes me happy to know that I could buy studs for my bike!

Stay safe out there!  No matter your transportation choice...
