Winter Riding Workshop

You don’t have to hang up your bike at the first chill in the air. Winter riding is more challenging, but can also be more rewarding. Ride Headquarters has many years of winter riding experience. They enjoy winter riding, and know how to be comfortable riding in all temperatures and conditions. Join us for a presentation that discusses the many ways to enjoy winter riding, including some that are not widely known. Ride Headquarters will share pro tips on being safe, riding confidently, and what to do to look forward to the colder, snowier days on your bike! Topics addressed during the talk are listed below.

  • Why ride outside in the winter
  • Best bike setup
  • Accessories for the bike and rider
  • Bike Maintenance
  • Bike fit - special considerations for the winter
  • Apparel - what to wear and how to keep it as simple as riding in the summer
  • Hydration & fueling your ride
  • Electronics and battery management
  • Night Riding - there isn't as much sun in the winter, be ready
  • Riding techniques
  • Reading the roads and trails - where to ride in the winter
  • Examples of Fun Winter Rides

The talk includes many examples and photos of New England in the winter featuring some of the most fun cycling to be had during the whole year. Come out to see why winter is a season to anxiously anticipate rather than dread! Bring your questions on specific winter riding interests and concerns, and get set to expand your riding horizons. Kindly RSVP so we know how much food to order.
