Zip Tie DIY Bicycle Snow Chains

The zip tie DIY bicycle snow chains idea from Fritz Rice, the DIYer on these photos. This MacGyver trick isn’t new, but now that winter is here, it’s worth bringing up once more, and it’s also a low-cost solution to keep on winter biking.

“I can accelerate, brake, and corner with aplomb, even on the vile snowpack/sheet ice mix the plows leave in the bike lanes. The zip ties dig nicely into the hardest packed surfaces, but they’re thin enough not to bounce the bike around at low speed or on short pavement sections.”
