I winter bike

Ben Boyce spends most of his time at work riding around town with kids on bikes as the program director for Norte. At least, it works out that way in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter, there is far too much computer time involved, so biking to work is Ben’s chance to get away from the screen, stretch his legs a little, and appreciate being outdoors. “Even if it is just for a few miles from a park and ride spot, getting myself around town or to work under my own power is a big mood-boost for me”, says Ben.

A couple of go-to’s for Ben’s winter biking:

  • Sunglasses or goggles to keep the snow flakes out, and protect against the polar vortex
  • Mittens!
  • Go slow on the turns.
