YouTube: Winter riding popular in Oulu

Snow and cold doesn’t bother cyclists in Oulu, Finland.

The reason is simple: The city has an extensive network of bike paths that are maintained year around. Snowplows clear the paths around the clock.

I rode through the winter when I lived in Fort Collins, Colo. One night I rode home in a wet snow.

By the time I got home 20 minutes later, my chain was stuck in a single gear, the freewheel a block of ice.
