Children in Finland keep cycling to school even at -17 ° C (1.4 ° F) Weather and it is a lesson in commuting

Are you a cyclist? If so, are you one of the many who carefully store the old believers in the winter months, convinced that all those rain, snow and ice are simply not suitable for cycling? Well, this Finnish city is living proof that winter bikes are perfectly possible with the right planning and infrastructure, and makes us a little soft to step into the car when we see a bit of snow.

Pekka Tahkola, an urban engineer in the field of well-being for Navico Ltd. and a bicycle coordinator for the city of Oulu, recently took a picture of the bicycle shed at the local school in -17C to show that, regardless of the circumstances, nothing keeps children out of their bikes.

For although it seems odd for some parents to let go of their children on two wheels, exposed to the icy cold of a northern winter, it is a completely normal and healthy thing to do here in Finland. "We organized a study trip for participants from Southern Finland to see how cycling to school is organized in our city", Pekka told the informative environment website MNN. "We visited a number of schools and also talked a lot with local teachers and school principals, I am pretty sure that this school is among the best, it is certainly not the only one, and there are many schools in Oulu where the majority of the children cycle and walk to school. & # 39;

"It's normal, always been, I cycled and kicked school when I was a kid," he says. "And it is the same, even in minus 30 C."
