Peek-A-Boo

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2012 - 3389
The Eastern Cold Front reached Denmark this week with record breaking frosty days and nights. Copenhageners continue to bike unabated but its necessary to plan your ride according to length - and the wind direction! I find that anything longer than 10 km needs serious packaging to avoid deep freezing my ears, nose and fingers. So lots of people here have started to play Peek-A-Boo.

Its always a balance if you want to pack you nose in because moist quickly builds up under your scarf if you do.
