Good for you, Cosmo!  A few falls on black ice have left me gunshy and
I rarely go out on the bike below freezing these days.  I was in
central Finland a weekend ago where the temperature was -28C (-18F).
There were a number of folks out riding their bikes commuting,
including kids and old folks. The Finns are tough people...

And they make good studded tires.  Maybe I should bring home a couple
of souvenirs sometime.

This image was taken of an older gentleman around town a day or later
when the temperature was -10C (+14F).  They plow, and grit, but don't
salt in most of Finland.

I was about five hours easy driving from the Arctic Circle.  I thought
about finding a car to borrow and hitting the road.  Next time...
