Actually I did bike throught the winter last year but not all the time. Didn't spend any money on good winter gear so was cold and looked like a homeless biker. Did some -20°C days where needed ski goggles.
What I was going to do with the studded tires
was put one on a extra front rim and change over when its icy.
I agree on snow days better to keep off the roads and keep to the sidewalks. Last year I took 10 minutes longer on a snow day but the cars took an hour longer.
For feet last year just wore thick woolen socks and hiking boots. Worked ok in that no frost bite. MEC has over boots that fit over bike shoes which are supposed to work pretty well. www.mec.ca
