When the winter approaches, most people tuck away their bicycles for the winter, letting them collect dust over the cold months. But for some cyclists, a cold, harsh winter is no obstacle at all. Some use their bikes to commute while other cant stand to take their training routine indoors. I sometimes consider cycling in the cold and the snow but then I remember my nice warm car and the idea just melts away. What do you think about winter bike transporting methods?

Some serious athletes ride year round to maintain a good form for the upcoming racing season.
They despise riding an indoor trainer and often switch between the road and mountain bike depending on the conditions. If you happen to be one of them you have to convert your bike into a machine capable of handling all weather conditions. You can take mountain bike tires, drill some holes in the rubber studs and insert metal car studs from the inside out to keep your grip on the road and snow. You can then insert a cut-up road tire as a liner between the tube and the rim to prevent the studs from causing punctures. You can also use front and rear fenders over the tires that extend almost all the way to the ground. They will keep you dry. They will also prevent snow and slush from spraying onto your partners (if you can find them). Some people consider this method as an environmentally friendly contribution. If you ride your bike, you will not drive a car. Besides, the bus doesnt come often enough to some places. Riding the bike seems just easier and cheaper in such cases. You dont have to buy a bus pass and wait around wasting your time
