Dangerously organic!

The Helsinki Fixed Gear and Single Speed people (aka. yksivaihde.net) decided to gather together to have a nice wintery ride, since for once the winter weather in Helsinki is more like "snow and cold and shine" than the usual "slush and water and ice and mud and bad winds and total darkness".

So at 1PM the group of about 20 bicyclists gathered together in the city center and took a ride around the city center. Weather was nice, there was no wind and the temperature was around -10'C, the local people and a big number of Russian tourists had a curious looks in their eyes as they were looking at the direction of our little weird group.

We rode following the bike paths on the seaside around the South tip of the city for about 7 miles and ended up in a beautiful seaside café called Regatta where the group dismounted their iron horses to have a cup of coffee and a sweet bun. Some even bbq'd sausage or two in a fireplace in the middle of the yard. So cozy, so cozy.
