WaterlooBikes and TriTAG are teaming up for a Winter Cycling booth at Winterloo featuring a display promoting protected bike lanes on King Street in Uptown.

  • What: Winterloo – Winter Cycling
  • Where: Waterloo Train Station Parking Lot (Caroline & Erb)
  • When: 11am-4pm Saturday & Sunday February 14 & 15.

Purpose: Allow people to experience riding different types of winter bicycle tires (skinny non studded, studded, and Diane Freeman will be bringing her Fat Bike for folks to try out.)

Let your city and regional councillor’s know you support protected bike lanes on King Street, use TriTAG’s contact form!

  • Winter Bicycle Demo
    • Winter Bike Setups – If you cycle through the winter, ride your bike to Winterloo and let people engage with you and your bike. I think we each approach winter differently and it’s interesting to see the variety of approaches.

It’s going to be two of the coldest days of the year.  It’s cold enough that I finally bought some winter cycling boots, good enough for the arctic. Last year my toes froze too many times. Blundstones are not for use in extreme cold!IMG_20150210_162852 (1)

  1. Hey, that’s me! :) Not that you can really tell under all those clothes…

    I’ll try to make it by with a bike or two at some point, probably on Saturday (we’re pretty booked Sunday). We have studs on my bike (Norco CityGlide with a 3-speed internally-geared hub) and on the bakfiets.
