Blizzards, bike shops and photos

This is what Helsinki looks now, except there's more snow. | Photo by Peter Nylund

Remember when I said a few days ago that it feels like living on planet Hoth? We’ve had a blizzard here today in Helsinki, something around 10-15 cm (4-6 inches) of snow in one day and I still saw cyclists plowing through the snow. Sadly, my local bike shop mechanic, where I was planting to take my bike (since I made a sandwich with it) is on holiday until the 29th of this month – which brings an interesting conundrum. Do I cheat my LBS or take it somewhere else?

Speaking of snow, Peter from Yeti rides, who we featured already about his Surly Pugsley and photos related has a new post showing the winter slowly and steadily crawling in. Wear a scarf.
