The photographs were taken on May 29th in Nuuksio.
Today on the way home riding the bicycle there was a lady, quite a few years older than me, whom I passed at one point, but she caught up with me several times when I stopped a traffic lights or when I slowed when going uphill. It took me some time to realize that she had an e-bike and that explained her speed. Or perhaps the bicycle just looked like an e-bike.
