Winter Is No Excuse for Not Riding
I thought this photo from last winter appropriate, seeing as how I'm currently soaking up the sun on the Red Sea in Egypt for two weeks.
Snow is no reason to stop the bikes. We have funky little snowploughs designed exclusively for our bike lanes and they are frightfully effective.
And we are good to our vegetation. I'm sure this is a feature in other cities, too, but at the onset of winter all trees and bushes in the city that line streets or bike lanes are shielded from slush and salt. They're removed again in the spring. Note the black shield on the right. In other places they use woven bamboo or sticks.
Winter? Bring it on.
The beach on the Red Sea? I'm on it.
