  • I just found that the reduced use of sand left no where to go at icy intersections. In the past, I’d just move off the ice towards the sand that had the 8-11 passes had moved off the beaten path, and I’d quickly stop. Without that sand I found I was skidding on ice far more often.

      • Icy, I mean, I see - blading after a snowfall inevitably means first roads, then intersections for days on end, skating rinks. What winter tires should pedestrians use?

        • Everyone should be forced to ride bicycles for the entire winter after the first snowfall.

            I keep ice cleats in my bag all winter long.

              • The fat tiresome bikes, aren't that easy, or so I'm told.

                • Fatbikes aren't that bad, but you don't need them to commute to/from work in the winter.

                  • What about the clean bike lanes being at risk? The horror......

                    • studded tires would be better. Fatbike tires are only really useful in powder.

                            Because people would then start screaming about the "nanny state".

                            The city doing something is one thing. The province mandating people do something is quite another. Perhaps insurance companies should be the ones that make it a requirement. No snow tires = no insurance coverage. Put people on the hook personally.

                            I've got snow tires and I just hope to stay out of the path of those that don't.
