2/4 of the year its just too cold out. I applaud your ambition, but this kind of business is an uphill battle in a cold canadian city.

In Hamilton? The roads are clear almost every day of the year, between the weather, traffic, ploughs and sunshine. I am able to ride my bike to work all but two to five days of the year. And some of those days I'm stuck at home anyhow because the University has shut down because of the weather.

My specialized equipment consists of ... well, not much. I have a pair of cheap, barely tinted sunglasses in my bag for riding into blowing snow on dark evenings. I keep a poncho strapped under my saddle, but I only use it in the worst downpours.

Otherwise, I just wear whatever I would walk in: overcoat, scarf, gloves, hat. Is it too cold to walk in this "cold, Canadian city" half the year, too?
