How can people POSSIBLY cycle in the kind of snow?! It must go all in their eyes and down their neck, not to mention slipping and sliding about all over the place. You have much more control in a car over your brakes and gears, so they must be dinging it really hard.

Apparently they /can/ cycle in this kind of snow, so it mustn't go down their neck and in their eyes. They seem to not be slipping and sliding all over the place. I don't know about control, because even though I'm 32, I've never driven a car, but from what I've seen, driving a car, even in a light dusting of snow, is really difficult. Recalling my physics regarding this, the increased inertia of the car takes a great toll on traction compared to bikes.

Hundreds of thousands of daily cycling citizens - hundreds of millions if you include a century of cyclists - can't be wrong.

If you can walk in it, you can cycle in it.

Cycling and driving is pretty much the same you just have to take it easy. One of the things about cycling in snow is there are far less cars and the quite is very nice Often for short journeys its quicker too
