How Weather Affects Biking in Vermont

From Local Motion

It comes as no surprise that weather, bad weather in particular, limits Vermonters’ travel by bicycle.  A 2011 study from UVM’s Transportation Research Center puts some data behind our assumptions.

Local Motion is working with many partners to get people more comfortable with biking in more challenging conditions.  As we say, there is no bad weather, only bad clothing! The right gear can make riding in the rain, at night or during the colder months safe and fun.
