After reading about snow chaos in the UK for a few days it’s our turn, with a snow front gradually making its way from south to north of Germany. One of the small extra jobs I seem to have picked up is clearing snow from in front of our boys’ kindergarten, so when the first flurry of snow came along, the neccesary tools went into the Bakfiets and off we went.

After stopping to get grit from a nearby bin we went to do battle with the snow. If the Xtracycle is the cycling equivalent of an SUV, then the Bakfiets is a pickup truck.

These were taken two days ago when the roads were still passable by bike. since then so much came down that I’m transporting things by sled now.
