I wonder if the fellow in the picture has snow tires. I notice more and more people on bicycles this year. gotta have nerve or what?

Jojo; I've got a bike too but I have too much respect for life and limb to ride in the winter, snow tires or not..LOL. People don't give you much room in the summer when the roads are full size....

People with motorcycles put them away not by law but by common sense.

They do not put knobby tires or chains and keep on going all winter long.

Enough already. I'm not worried about bicycles in the winter. It's those dam E-bikes in the winter that are dangerous. Pass a law to ban them from the road in the winter before somebody gets killed.

Were expecting a White Christmas? Unless I'm color blind it hasn't been exactly green the last few weeks.

I've been seeing people on bikes with the big balloon tires. It looks like great exercise as long as they stay safe and keep off the streets.
Retreaded 12/25/2013 1:35:32 PM Report

Let them ride on the sidewalks in winter..very few people are out walking the streets in winter. ANY kind of bike is now dangerous on the roads in winter.

frnlak yeah reg bikes are the way to go. Them e bikes offer NO protection if you slide into a car or wipe out and get run over ....wait neither do Bikes ,so what's the difference?

Maybe some people ride their bikes in the winter cause they prob don't get enough money to get a bus pass or they post all the time on facebook asking friends for rides and nobody can offer them a ride.

Sounds like all of you need to ditch the keyboard and get a life, nothing better to do than post senseless commentary on objects in a picture not even pertaining to the story.
Really !!!
Pathetic!
