Snow, ice, grit and slips... CTC's Dan Cook shares his techniques to help you stay upright, build confidence and even enjoy mountain biking in the snow!
With the onset of snow, you have the opportunity to encounter some truly fantastic environments on your bike. Despite the ice and the heightened risk of slips and crashes, riding in the snow is actually quite safe (as you are travelling slowly and there are lots of drifts to fall into) and most of all, its fun!.
Like anything new, there is a bit of working out how to do it so you feel comfortable. First though you do have to get out there and try it.
