  1. A winter cyclist for many decades, I cannot see the need for ‘winter tires.’ Most of the time, I use the road space cleared of snow.I seldom cycle on snow unless forced to.

    ‘Winter tires’ is a term burrowed from cars. In fact, the most energy conserving and comfortable bicycle tire is narrower than the thick mountain-bike tire. It cuts through any snow covered ground easier.

    The weight of the bike needs more consideration among winter cyclists. When not heavy enough, a strong gust of wind can blow a cyclist off the road into the path of a car.
