Another missive from the Assen local government printed in the paper.

This is all about de-icing the roads and cycle paths.

The title "Assen government in action against slipperiness"

A few salient points. 340 km of road and 207 km of cyclepath within Assen are to be gritted. There are 6 gritting vehicles for the roads and 4 specifically for the cyclepaths. You can collect your own supply of free salt for de-icing any patches you think need it (we've already got ours).

It's -6 C today (the 22nd of December), and there's no sign of people having given up cycling for th winter. I've still yet to hit any real ice on my bike and I'll be out on it again today.
