Winter can be tough on your bike. You can protect it from the worst of the elements though, so here's our guide to winter-proofing your road bike. Subscribe to GCN: If you're not careful, winter can take its toll on your pride and joy.

What is an option, however, is making sure that your bike is protected as well as possible going in to winter.
