Motivate is lucky to have hundreds of dedicated employees across all 11 of our systems, and many of them love to bike. In fact, many of them do it all year long.

The truth is: winter riding can be exhilarating (and it can even expedite commutes while drivers sit in gridlock), and the vast majority of our systems operate year-round.

We asked our team for their tips on how to stay safe and comfortable on two wheels all year long.

Want more advice? Our systems have also shared some helpful winter riding tips. Follow the links to read more from Hubway, Divvy and Citi Bike.

In sum: Don’t let the change in season be a deterrent. Please post your best bundled winter selfies, and be sure to tag Motivate and your bike share system when you do. Wishing you many happy rides this winter.
