You can, theoretically, if dressed appropriately, but might not be fun. When cycling, it feels colder due to windchill, based on your speed.

Tubeless are tires that don't require an inner tube. They need rims designed for tubeless, and often have sealant inside to seal any small punctures before it can go flat.
