So, I headed to Paimio River.
There were tracks of others on the ice, so it was fairly safe to ride there. However, you should always carry some safety gear with you. I had my icepicks with me.
Out from the river and I got pretty excited, as the views opened.
As expected, there was other people too on the ice, like fishermen, skiers, skaters and some snowmobiles. I asked about the ice thickness from the fishermen, and it was around 15-30 cm in different places.
The surface of the ice had all kind of forms:
I really like the very open and wide surroundings on the ice.
I decided to ride to Karuna, a south-western part of Sauvo. Over there, I didn't need to worry about the ice thickness, but a very reckless van driver that was all over the place on the ice.
On the shore at Karuna:
I rode to Sauvo along the old Karuna road and purchased some eating from the local grocery store. Feeling was great, not tired at all. Then I countinued on the small roads to Paimio in the darkness:
About 90 km of riding and a very nice day on the ice. Also, 1013.25 km of training so far for January. Things are looking good for Rovaniemi 150.
