What better time to avoid being overheated. Missoula in the winter can be a great place to get around via active transportation. Personally I concur with Kevin Hyde that bicycling is the preferred way to go. Having been a year round commuter during my working years I became quite comfortable riding in most any weather. Finding the right streets can be a challenge but is well worth the effort to help keep the body in shape during the down winter months. What is your active method for commuting during the winter; bike, bus, walk, run? Add your comments!

Leave the Winter slush at the door….
