Winter Vinter Hiver
Copenhagen awoke to another fresh layer of snow yesterday and it continued snowing throughout the day. Sub-zero temperature and a nasty wind.
As mentioned, 400,000 Copenhageners continue to ride throughout the winter but I could see that the busstops were busy that morning so there must have been a drop in the number of cyclists. Let's say 300,000 cyclists took their bike. The rush hour levels of bicycle traffic didn't seem thinned out on my route.
Wintry weather like this makes for creative fashion solutions. Style over Speed indeed.
The warmest and loveliest hat in town. And, by the looks of it, the basket is toasty warm, too, with that personalised fur fringe.

Here's a little film featuring Copenhageners just getting on with it in a wintry Copenhagen. No whining, little goofy 'gear', just people in regular clothes on normal bikes.
