Winter Wheels is back! For the seventh year, B!KE’s Winter Wheels program will provide 25 aspiring cold-weather riders with equipment and support to cycle through the winter. Program participants receive a free set of studded tires and six months of access to B!KE’s Open Shop to prepare and maintain their bike for winter riding. Program activities include a launch party and winter apparel fashion show, workshops on winter riding skills and bike maintenance, the Winter Lights Glow Ride in December, and Snow Pokes group rides periodically through the winter. Program participants commit to get out on their bike at least once a week throughout the winter and share their experience to help increase the visibility of winter bike riders in the city of Peterborough.
Want to join our riders this year? Applications for Winter Wheels 2023 program are open from now until end of day October 16. Participants selected for the program will be notified by October 21. Apply online and get a grip on winter!
Riding a bike in the winter can be a fun, safe, and reliable way to travel. Wondering what that might look like? Check out this Winter Wheels video.
