Bicycling Through Winter

You've seen it. Now try it. You can bicycle warmly through the cold and snow. It can be done; it is done every year in Madison. Just check these sites and find how others do it.

Winter Bicycle Parking

While not all bike racks are cleared of snow during the winter, bicyclists do still have a number of options for parking on campus. A list of areas that are either partially sheltered or are cleared of snow (as the university grounds crew is able to do so) is available below, organized by East Campus areas, Central areas, and West Campus areas.
