Only the most brutal, ice-encrusted conditions can keep commuter Lee Penn off her bike.
"If my pedals can't clear the snow pack," she said Sunday, "then I pull out my skis and ski to work."
Penn was one of nearly a dozen hardy commuters huddled at Sunrise Cyclery for the second annual Winter Skill Share. The event was hosted by Grease Rag Ride & Wrench, a social, supportive group for women, trans and femme bikers.
During the warmer months, Grease Rag puts on casual group rides and communal wrenching sessions. And now Grease Rag gives us a primer to staying warm, safe and upright on our bikes this winter.
