With 19 inches of heavy, wet snow recorded in Central Park on Thursday morning, I thought I’d continue with my theme of keeping warm and comfortable during winter cycling. I came across this excellent video on the basics of cold-weather commuting, recently posted by streetfilms. The 4-minute primer covers how to dress, what bike accessories you’ll need and how to ride safely. Those new to winter commuting may be surprised to learn that overheating tends to be a bigger problem than under-dressing, so layer accordingly.
