  1. oh wow! I had no idea that you could do cycling on the snow. As you say it is common in Finland. I would be too frightened that I would slide but I guess if there are studs on the tyres it would prevent that.

  6. Beautiful winter cycling photos Matti. I saw quite a lot of people cycling in the snow last winter when I was in Tampere so the post brought back happy memories for me.

      Nice to read that You were there in Winter. Last time we were in Tampere October 5, 2018. We made a theatre weekend trip. Usually we visit theatres in other towns than Helsinki. In New year we were in Varkaus. Next time we will go to Pori theatre in April. Thank You commenting so nicely.

      Have a good day!

  7. I never understood why people would cycle in the snow, but then I discovered that they have special snow tires for the bikes. However, it just seems like it would be too cold with the wind blowing in your face.

  8. Hello Matti,
    It must be exciting (and good exercise!) to cycle in the snow! Now I understand: it’s important to have special tires in order to cycle in the snow 🙂 Thank you for sharing these scenes of your beautiful city. (We have some snow in my town (Tsukuba, Japan), but not like in your photos.)

  9. How cold is it at the moment?

    Comment by Timothy — February 12, 2019 @ 12:35 | Reply

    • Hello Timothy.

      Thank You commenting. I just checked actual weather: -9 centigrade. Last Year it was -19 Centigrade when shooting these photos. Wind was heavy, which made the real feel -29 Centigrade. 🙂 This means that man need good winter cloths. Fingers freeze easily when photographing. Therefore, I use gloves and mittens. Happily, there is very near library, where You can go to warm up. The coldest weather in which I have been was January 10, 1987, -34 Centigrade. It was cold and felt also.

      Have a good day!

  12. Hello! Winter cycling is natural in Finland? It is safe to have a long distance road that have been maintained. No roads are maintained for bicycles in Japan so nobody rides a bicycle if it snows in Japan. Have a good day!

    Where there are winter tires for bicycles popular there. In the area where I live there is a person who cyclists with summer tire specifications and it is dangerous.

    • Hello Saganhama.

      One person, who shows example – that is great. It is natural that in “warm” parts, people do not bike in winter. Here in my country there is a difference of people living in south or more in the north. In the north people living, are more hardener than those living in the south, I think. 🙂 Thank You.

    • Hello Heide.

      Oulu is one of my favorite town in Finland. It offers winter fun for children and for adults. The main winter happening is reindeer race, in which everyone can participate and it is free!

      If You have seen any of my posts about it, then:

      Reindeer race

      Reindeer race 2

      Next race is on this week on Saturday. We will visit it. Thank You for Your kind comment.

        • Hello Heide.

          It is Saturday morning and we are now in a well-equipped cottage in Oulu at camping site of Nallikari. We will spend here ten days. Driving from Helsinki took 8 hour and 50 minutes. The road conditions were terrible! Today seems to be good to walk to the reindeer carnivals.

          My posts will be from 2018. This means that photos which I today will shoot, I will present them next year. This is valid also my newt post which shows winter village for children, free reindeer rides for all families and free reindeer races for everybody. Last year was exception, because then I showed photos of world’s biggest snow castle from 2017 & 2018.

          Snow Castle 2017&2018

          The Lady in red is my wife and me in black is me in this post.

          This post shows nice set of photos during many years. I suggest You to check it!

  28. Wow such beautiful photos! I used to cycle to school when I lived in Kokkola too. Here in Poland almost nobody cycles in snow, it’s mostly a summer/spring thing. I love the fact that nature is so omnipresent in Finland, and those colorful Nordic houses are so pleasant to look at ❤ Thanks for this lovely post that evoked memories! 🙂
