Friends and Adverse Weather

Snow Chatting
It takes a lot more than snow, sub-zero temperatures and a wind approaching storm strength to stop Copenhageners from having a chat with friends or loved ones on their bicycles.
Double Winter

Afternoon Chat

Oh, yes... are following Cycle Chic on Twitter?! Hmm? Are you?

So is there a general acceptance of people coming to work with sopping wet clothes in Copenhagen? I bike year round in my work/street clothes, but if it is raining or otherwise very wet, I wear a waterproof winter jacket and rain pants so my suit does not get wet.

Curious in Milwaukee, WI.

Your photographs are lovely. Please feel free to take a look at my blog http://gennacamptonillustration.blogspot.com/ where I have posted an illustration inspired by Copenhagen Cycle Chic.

Just found your blog and I've to say it's great, but one question: can you tell my, why there isn't anyone with a helmet on your photos? Even in the coldest weather on ice-streets no one wears a helmet? Nobody ever vitnessed a broken head? Helmet & cycle-chic is the challenge.Anyway, keep rolling! With regards from the now not so very cold germany, whitey.

dave: we just wear the same clothes as we do when we're walking. look at the photos... everyone is wearing winter jackets. the bikes have fenders.

arriving sopping wet is a rarity.
