In the Illinois Community
So you bike to work and it’s the middle of winter. Not to worry! Divvy Bikes are determined to take on the brutal Chicago winter and will be available to ride all winter long! All 300 stations will be open year-round.
Get ready to #DivvyOn with these cold weather bike riding tips from our Divvy Partners.
Although all of these are great tips, it’s also important to know your own limits. Be aware of the minimum temperature and conditions you’re willing to bike in during the cold winter months. Even though biking is a healthy alternative to other forms of transportation, you should always have a back-up plan. You never know what Chicago weather has planned for us!
In the meantime, our friends at Divvy will be keeping the stations clear of snow and ice to make sure the bikes are ready to roll at all times. The bike maintenance team will also be busy repairing and checking all the bikes in the system to ensure they meet safety standards even in the thick of the elements.
Even though Divvy Bikes are ready to brave “Chiberia”, the system may shut down in the event of severe weather conditions. In those cases, Divvy will notify riders via press release, social media, email and the CycleFinder app. Are you fearless in the face of flurries? What are you tips and tricks to biking in the winter?
