The True Winter Heroes

Rider in Madison, Wisconsin. Photo credit: Michelle Stocker, The Cap Times
I see brave souls, taking the lane, bundled up against the cold.

They often ride without studded tires, on any style of bike.

Getting from one place to another.

Flashing lights, backpack, panniers, or messenger bag.

The true heroes of winter are the everyday riders, braving the elements.


  1. A respectful tip o' the cap to winter commuters...

  2. I have only done one winter ride Minnesota

  3. Our paper had what I thought was a great photo here the other day

    1. Yes, that's a great photo and illustrates what I mean by the unsung heroes. It may be their only transportation and it's much quicker than walking.
