Dr. Richard Larouche recently wrote a blog post titled, “As we head into winter, here are our best tips to walk/bike/scooter through the season!,” that was published on ParticipACTION’s PepTalk blog.
From the blog post:
Be prepared. “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing” goes the old saying! Wearing multiple layers is the best strategy. The first layer (closest to the body) should keep your skin dry – a polyester shirt will usually do the trick, but cotton will likely get wet and make you colder! The second layer should keep you warm – think wool, fleece or down. Finally, the third layer should protect you from the wind. A “soft shell” jacket will work fine on warmer winter days where you can get quite warm from walking or biking. For the very cold days, a goose down jacket is your best bet.
