Snow fun

We had a couple of inches more snow again last night. Also the local snowplowers are not doing their work so well, so I decided to change the tyres of my winter bike. Nokian Hakka WXC300 studded tyres are not good in snow, but I happen to have a pair of old Nokian Boazobeana tyres that were marketed as snow tyres back in the late 90s.

A view from my normal commute. The Boazobeanas are much better in these conditions.

 

I decided to check out some of the local trails after work. The evening is setting in.

 

Snow paradise.

 

 

This trail was not rideable but it was still fun to push the bike thru the snowdrift.

 

 

I took this short video of my walk.

Some tracks of local inhabitants.

 

 

Came across to a point where some people had walked. I tried to ride here but it was impossible.

 

A look to awesome evening sky.

 

Another view from the trail.

The Boazobeana winter tyre.

My winter bike with a retro feel.

A beautiful winter evening in Paimio.

It was -14°C when I got back home. The forthcoming night would be perfect for a winter overnighter! The weather forecasts don't look so good at the moment as temperature is supposed to get closer 0°C, or even above, in the end of the week. But let's see what happens. I'm looking forward for overnighter with Peter on Wednesday-Thursday night as Thursday is a holiday.
