What do I wear for cycling in winter?
Part of the answer to this frequently asked question depends on what type of riding you will do.

In fact, winter riding can be really fun – there’s great satisfaction in defying the cold to enjoy the outdoors and stay fit.
On the other hand, winter brings some real hazards – some fairly obvious, some not so much – that call for a little preparation and common sense.
Here is a roundup of winter cycling tips to help you stay on two wheels, safely, through the deepest cold of the season.
Hills, let alone mountains, are surely the number one obstacle for new cyclists, as they are associated with hard work and pain and all that. This makes climbing hills one of the most daunting and challenging parts of riding a bicycle, especially for beginners who may try to avoid hills at all costs.

With the correct gearing, technique, and attitude, you can learn to love the hills — to seek them out, challenge them, defy them — because hills can be a vital part of your cardiovascular training program, and that feeling of accomplishment at the top of the climb can be addictive!
This round up of our favorite cycling tips for climbing will help any cyclist ride up hills better. Whether you’re just setting out as a cyclist or you’ve been riding for ages, there’s no need to be daunted by the prospect of those steep hills. These cycling climbing techniques will help you conserve energy and enjoy the uphill ride a lot more.
