Snow and Ice Cycling Tips for Beginners
As the former vice president of technology automation control solutions at Honeywell International, Daniel Sheflin oversaw research and development for the $16 billion segment and managed more than 5,000 engineers and scientists. Daniel Sheflin enjoys snow cycling in his free time.

Newcomers to snow cycling may find the learning curve steep (and slippery) at times. At the most basic level, snow cyclists should use a much lower tire pressure than normal, which maximizes their area of contact with the snow. A thickly treaded tire can also improve traction considerably. Many snow cyclists lower their saddles to lower their center of mass and improve their ability to stabilize with their feet in the event of a slip.

Once newcomers finally hit the road, they should be sure to keep a safe distance from the curb. Not only are the sides of the road the most slippery, but the curb itself presents another obstacle to avoid. Snow cyclists should always give themselves ample extra distance to stop, a practice that takes some time to develop. Whenever possible, snow cyclists can reduce slippage by choosing the driest path available.
