Winter riding is not for the faint of heart. There are a lot of concerns that cyclists have to deal with at this time of year that don’t even cross their minds during any other season.

Have some kind of training plan for your indoor training. If you are just pedaling along on the trainer with the same intensity every time you ride you are doing yourself a disservice.
In the cold temperatures you can get windburn, frostbite and even, in extreme cases, hypothermia. So, you really need to keep almost every inch of your body covered and protected from the wind.
