Cabs with Bike Racks Got Your Back

I love biking in the snow! It's a great way to enjoy winter weather, work your core, achieve ultimate bike balance skills, and have an outdoor adventure. It's a blast on the bike path, but not fun on a busy road during a heavy snowfall, even if it is designated as a bike route. Motorists have less visibility, less control, and are not as mindful of bicyclists sharing the road. You may also encounter a vocal jerk who will announce himself by rolling down a window and yelling, “Idiot!”

My commute is two thirds on the bike path and a third on W. Broadway.  On the way to work last Wednesday, I took one of the two east-bound car lanes on W. Broadway, because the bike lane hadn't been cleared. In taking a car lane, I road down the middle of the lane to assertively claim my space on the road, which seemed safer than timidly riding the edge of the lane.

As I watched snow quickly accumulate throughout the day, I realized it was one of those rare circumstances when biking home on W. Broadway would be too dangerous. For my return trip, I put my bike on the back of a Green Cab (they keep bike racks on year-round) to avoid biking on W. Broadway. I had the driver take me straight to the John Nolen Path for some fun “snow bike” action on the last two-thirds of my commute home.

  2. I also love biking in snow but in heavy snowfall it's dangerous to have a ride on a bike. I think it’s good to hire a cab and put a bike on it and go to home. Your post is too good. I really enjoyed reading it.
