It is expected to be cold and rainy, maybe windy, and maybe some snow too. And while we all love soaking up sun on the morning of Bike to Work Day, eating bacon and sipping coffee watching all those bicyclists roll by and enjoy the camaraderie and fun of biking to work, we realize that many who were planning on biking are hedging and waffling or have already called it. For those on the fence, BCA says give it a go. First, as long as you have the right clothing you will be fine. You might be a bit chilled when you start but you will warm up, and there is lots of coffee along the way to keep you warm and moving. Second, if you can brave the cold rain and snow, then biking on sunny glorious days will be a breeze. So set your sights high. And roll out on that bike tomorrow. You may just find that biking in the rain is fun!
