Not all cities have the logistical power of Copenhagen and its fleet of cycle lanes snowplows (and at times also Copenhagen gets caught).

Even cycle friendly Berlin doesn’t do a good job in clearing cycle lanes from snow. Let’s not talk about London, where a light powdering of white stuff is sufficient to overwhelm those responsible to clear it.

In all circumstances, a tricycle affords you a degree of safety that will make riding in the snow fun and stress-free.
