Looking at the BARBEGAZI programming, you might have been surprised to see fatbiking as one of the activities planned for the winter’s most fun weekend. However, thousands of Montrealers use their bikes during winter, no matter the weather!
Winter biking may seem a bit bold to you, but many have already turned to this method of transportation. It allows you to work on your winter shape while also avoiding jam-packed public transit that harbors all kinds of sketchy flu symptoms. Here’s the low-down on how to bike safely during the winter, whether it’s on a fatbike at BARBEGAZI or in your city’s streets.
First things first: dress warm! It’s recommended that you use the “onion skin” method, which enables you to manage your thin layers depending on Quebec’s changing (and often fickle) winter weather. Snow goggles will also greatly help you navigate tough winter storms!
