A Dutch snowstorm by @nextstepcontent in Utrecht. Nice detail: a bike! Because Dutch people also use a bike during a snowstorm.

@cynthiapuntnl shows us a snow-covered path, with her footsteps. Seems like she’s the first to explore the snowy path!

@sffte also photographed Amsterdam in the snow. This time Oud-West is the scene for the photo. Again, lovely street lights and bikes covered in snow.

So you thought you can’t run when it snows? Tell that to @annemerelcom who endured the snow during a quick run!

The public isn’t the only one to post pictures on Instagram. Rijkswaterstaat, the Dutch organization who takes care of the public roads, posted this picture. “With 1200 people, 900 cars and 200 million kilograms of salt we are working hard to keep the roads safe en accessible.”

Like @currystrumpet says, the Dutch keep cycling!

And lastly, @view_reflex took a photo from the bikes at the Central Station. Try to find your bike now!
