We have shared blinker systems embedded in bicycle helmets, rear mounted signaling lights and now for those who have flat handlebars, the WingLights. This inexpensive directional light system (a perfect stocking stuffer) easily mounts into each end of the handlebars. Then, when making a turn, simply tap the light at the end of the right or left handle grip and move to the proper lane. Just like signaling when driving a car.
For many, not familiar with the bold north, walking on water or biking is a fun winter tradition. In the Minnesota region of the upper Midwest, Mother Nature’s annual temperature swing allows many to safely pedal, hike or ski across the frozen water. Typically, for three to four months, riding a bike across a body of water, with a sheet of ice over the surface, is a normal occurrence. Opening up new places to explore and a chance to view the shoreline from a different angle.
Snow, Ice and cold are great conditions for Fat Biking, but how do you keep your fitness if Fatbiking isn’t your thing? Luckily, there are tons of exercises, drills and products to help you keep your fitness through the winter riding months.

The Strider Snow Cup has been dubbed the “Toddler Tour de France” by the Wall Street Journal, ESPN and others. A world leader in teaching young children to ride and rip on two wheels, Strider Bike has announced Buck Hill, in Burnsville, Minnesota, will host the Snow Cup on March 2nd. Toddlers ages five and under will shred the bunny slopes on their Strider 12 Bikes outfitted with the Strider Snow Ski accessory for a day of snow-filled fun.
No matter how brave you are sometimes weather conditions keep you from conquering those trails. This is especially true as the mercury drops and turns our beloved Earth into something reminiscent of the Russian front. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to have fun with indoor biking.
