Slippery by runner365


Cobbles, snow and bikes, a recipe for disaster one should think. However everybody seems to handle it just fine.

I love the contrast here, Claes! (and also the courage of the bikers...)

Nice capture. I was always fascinated during my Scandinavian visits by the folks who would ride their bicycles through snow and over ice.

I imagine the snow is less slippery than just wet cobbles would be. I certainly looks rather bleak and wintry.

@vignouse I'm not sure about that. I tend to feel ok biking on wet cobbles while saying my mantra "don't touch the front brake, don't touch the front brake ..." however snow make me tense and stiff and not touching any of the brakes, which kind of makes it a little complicated to ride a bike
. @domenicododaro @stray_shooter depends on the bike. I don't mind riding a MTB on ice/snow but my current ride with 23 mm slick roadbike tires are simply not made for this, or I'm just getting old ;-)

I wouldn't like to ride a bike in conditions like that!

@yrhenwr Exactly!
