A hint - it is autumn, even winter

Dear bikers of this forsaken city of the North. There is ice on the ground today. Store your bicycle, like we used to in the good old days. You may fall and get hurt or cause accidents with pedestrians. For example if you spot a nice old man and his grandson quietly walking on their way to school - do not ride the bike as if you were at the finish of Tour de France in Champs Élyseés. I know that there are winter tyres for bikes ( very strange ) but remember that we live close to the North Pole and that there can be 50 cm of snow and 20C below zero in winter. So give it a thought...store the bike if you aren't a pro.

This picture with its strong symbolism was taken by Ulf Fågelhammar in October.

Oh no! This is the season when the good ol' cyclists take the last chances for pedalling before hanging their bikes on the wall and resting a bit!
Run as fast as you can! but ... beware of Ulf!
