One of the questions I came here with was a biggie: Is it worth it? We know the benefits of making cities better for cyclists (healthier cities and people, more interesting street life, more vibrant communities, etc.), I wasn’t sure if the same would apply to winter cycling, given that the challenges in making it viable are so much greater. Now, there’s little doubt in my mind that it’s worth it.

The Forks is excited to host the cycling world this winter. As a city of cold winters we are always looking for ways to get out and enjoy it. Winter cycling is a perfect fit and we look forward to learning how others do it. Welcome.
