When not only motivation is required
Survey to the earth. Would you bicycle during winter? Let’s dive into this. As I was birth in a northern country, and to be clear, I consider “north” when you are closer to the arctic circle than the tropic of cancer. As I said, being born in a cold country, where the temperature average goes from 9 to -1 C compared to New York that is more 17 to 9 C, I would say that even using a motorcycle is not possible. The problem is not the motivation to use our bicycle. People here are usually quite active. We like to play sports, do exercise outside, even in winter, but going on the road, in a winter climate is not probable.
However, people still purchase suitable bicycles for their summer rides. They pay the same price but will only use them for a short period or usually for training and pleasure. So, let’s get to a conclusion. Bicycle here is very well implemented for these two aspects but thrown in a good snowstorm, and your road becomes a real mess. Car and trucks have already a hard time moving around; in my opinion, it would be chaos to add bicycle into this.
Maybe a possibility would be to have an alternate road circuit having small snowplows removing snows, but that would cost even more, and we already suffer from workforce shortage.
