Winter in Finland with Kona’s Dr. Dew


After catching word that the next Dew Files would take place in Finland during the month of January, Dr Dew’s thoughts were, “Thank goodness it isn’t a Hawaiian shoot!”

Welcome to winter biking’s most friendly city. With more than 750 miles of cycling routes, a little darkness and freezing temperatures doesn’t stop the thousands of Helsinki commuters who ride to work every day through rain, sleet, and snow.

In this installment of the Dew Files, we follow Kona Bikes‘ intrepid bike designer into the heart of winter to find out just how hardy the Finns are. “The Finns show a great enthusiasm for life,” explains Dew. “Their warmth and hospitality made it feel like we were in Hawaii instead of being just outside the Arctic Circle.”
