Snowpenhagen Cycle Chic
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
The snow started falling a couple of days ago and I took some shots on my way home. The light here was strange because there was a demonstration in the background and the bright blue lights of the police vans and the strange reds and greens of the traffic lights splashed a surreal rainbow of colour on the street.
Green scarves shine through, however.
With the Climate Conference in town I've been giving interviews almost constantly and everyone asks about how on earth people continue to cycle in the winter. The temperature has hovered around freezing all week and, with the wind chill, we're pushing -10 Celcius.
We just get on with it. We have a closet filled with winter clothes that we can use for walking or cycling and we just get on with it.
People have been cycling in winter since the bicycle was invented, so why should it be any different now?
Bring a friend. It's always cosier.
