Edmonton Bicycle Commuters’ Society offers another cool experience….
Studded winter tires can add a significant improvement to one’s winter riding experience and add a high degree of safety when one is faced with riding in icy conditions… and let me tell you that pulling away from cars as they spin out at intersections can be very gratifying.
Did you know that you can make your own studded tires for a fraction of what commercially available tires cost ? These are tires that work just as well and will give you many years of reliable service.
We’ll provide the sheet metal screws and old tubes for lining the tire. Used and new tires will be for sale and will range from $10 – $25. Feel free to bring your own supplies if you like. We’ll have a couple electric drills, but please let us know if you can bring your own and if you can share.
