We had a blizzard yesterday that lasted the whole day. I don't know how much snow we have but it was enough to have an advanced snow shovel to clean the cycle path I had never seen before. Last winter many cyclist had fallen and were injured with broken arms or shoulders because the paths were full with ice and snow. Only motorways were kept clean. After a national complaint about the dereliction of the cyclists, some cities decided to do something about it and I am glad Almere does so too.
If you were some time in the supermarket you could find your bike like this.
