At home my kitchen faces 35th Avenue, the neighborhood's popular bike route. As I prepare meals or wash dishes I'm heartened by the sight of all of the cyclists riding by. The stream of bicycles does slow considerably this time of year but I still give a cheer when someone rides by.
Cyclists face a few challenges these months between November through March such as ...
With sunset at 5:15 pm there is a likelihood that you will be out after dark. There are many light options available, my favorite is a dynamo powered system but we also stock rechargeable headlights that are very bright.
Outdoor activities help one acclimate to the season, dress in layers, wear a hat and cover your extremities.
I ride platform pedals and wear Timberlands staying fashionable and warm.
Slush and Rain
You might get caught in the elements at any time of the year, be prepared. Good quality tires will help you ride through unexpected slushy conditions. We recommend Panaracer's TServe PT and Schwalbe's Marathon, both are in stock now.
Some of us relish riding on ice every year and we sell Nokkian or Schwalbe studded tires to aid you along the way. I corner through icy intersections better than most cars on my Nokkians.

It pays to be aware of your surroundings. Neighbors of ours were driving through the American MidWest and found this Hiawatha classic cruiser abandoned in a corn field by the side of the road. The Hiawatha suffered from the elements for sure but with our full overhaul package it is now a rideable American classic.

Ethan proceeded to take remove every component from the frame in order clean, straighten, and properly lubricate all of the vital parts. He succeeded in keeping the bicycle intact as a fun, rideable cruiser for the streets of Denver.
bent crank was replaced

A beautifully lugged frame set combined with a classically designed component package makes for a bicycle meant for riding. A beautiful bicycle isn't for "cruising" around town no this bicycle is built for daily riding; day or night, rain or shine, asphalt or gravel, there is no stopping the Cheviot.
