And though it’s slowly improving, we don’t yet have the best biking infrastructure. Improbable as it might sound, some of our population use bikes as their primary mode of transportation year-round. Many enjoy the enhancement to their health and fitness, and spending more time in the fresh air. Others have noticed that in attempting to travel more consciously, they have significantly cut down on unnecessary excursions. Here, five intrepid citizens, each of whom represent both the custom bike-building and winter-commuting worlds of Rochester bicycling culture, discuss craft and theft, dispel stubbornly held myths, and give tips on sharing the road with drivers and driving snow. (Pictured: local cyclist Michael Cardinale.)
