Suggestions in weather
- Beware of black ice in Spring when days are warm and nights below freezing.
- Consider biking to after school activities with a car pick up at the end.
- Regulars find walking or rolling is a great way to start their day and helps their concentration in school. Walking & rolling habits formed in elementary continue into later years.
- When wet, knobby texture on mountain bike type tires work better than road bike tires. We learned the hard way that bald tires are dangerous! Check treads once a season.
- While fenders limit the rain spray, water proof rain pants are very practical. In case of sudden, unscheduled growth spurts Campmor.com carries rain pants in youth sizes all year.
- We found a ski helmet and goggles are warmer than a bike helmet in winter
