The photographs were taken on February 6th and 7th in Luukki.
I commuted by bicycle today. There was some snow and ice on the road, but mostly the asphalt was bare. Sand/gravel has been used to add traction to asphalt, but this is not so nice for bicycle tires. One year I fell down when the worn gravel on top of asphalt acted the same way as ball-bearings. However, taking some care the conditions for commuting by bicycle are excellent.
In January I got 160 km riding the bicycle, and in February 288 km, which means 448 km so far this year. I hope March will be good (e.g., not much snowfall) for riding the bicycle.
