Let It Snow: First MSP Snow of the Season


Everyone panic! It’s November 13 in Minneapolis, and we’re having the first snow. Winter riding season is here!

Personally, I don’t believe this is going to last until Wednesday. It’s to warm up on Monday, and even now it’s heavy, wet and dumb snow. The plows aren’t especially visible at this point.

If you’re looking to extend your season, one of the most popular posts I’ve ever published on this blog is about prepping for riding all winter. One thing that is true of the process is that it’ll cost a few bucks to really be able to kick it all winter long – whether it’s light acquisition, getting studded tires, looking at a bicycle that can even support studded tires. On the other hand, winterizing your car costs money. Having winter clothing of any type costs money. So.
