Officer Robert Waldoch chose to ride because he didn't think the weather was that bad.
"Right now the weather hasn't been as bad as everybody thought, at least I think so," he said. "It's a way for me to go out and connect with people."
He says if the wind chill is below minus-20, it's too cold for him. With all this snow and ice, he admits he's had quite a few slips and falls.
"Biking in the snow is rough. Even with the snow tires that are studded, you're still slipping and sliding around," Waldoch says.
