365daysofbiking Ladies, please:
October 8th – This is a post that will hopefully confine us to a mild winter.
After suffering a spill in November last year on ice while riding summer tyres, I’m taking no chances this year and have the ice studs on now as we’ve already had a couple of heavy frosts, and I’m, getting too old for the falling off lark.
My rubber of choice for the cold months is Schwalbe Active Winter 30mm which has a good tread and several hundred tungsten carbide studs that bite into black ice and keep me upright.
They are a little noisy, and although not slow, not the nippiest tyres in the world.
Now I’ve fitted them, expect it to be warm throughout the winter…
