Aldo's Plan of Attack For Winter Cycling

For the last 17 years, the "man behind the scenes" at the Ciclismo Classico base in Italy has been Aldo Papini. As our in-house Tuscan bike mechanic, Aldo is a wealth of information when it comes to easier winter cycling and plain old 'tender loving' bike care. To help you stay motivated to ride during the winter, we've also included Top Guide Enrico Pizzorni's tips for proper dress and layers during inclement weather conditions.

Best advice of all: Don't stop riding!

Cold Weather Riding Tips

As with any winter outdoor activity, layering is key.
