Back in my Mavic Zxellium Ultimate shoes again today, perfect :)
Rode with my boss after work today, a nice Trek Madone 6.2 couple on the roads. I started with an intervall to try a climb before we met, think I will try to train serious later in august. Then we rode some nice roads, didn’t have any food or any plan so was pretty soft. Felt good riding with an easy pace (for me) that I think is very hard to do alone and feels like you sometimes need to slow down and just ride too.
Happy riding too ;)
So back home after 3h and 17min as you can see here: Movescount
Now recharge for the months last training with the fast people tomorrow.
Was out riding with 3 nice guys before work today. Perfect temperature at 7 o clock :) Some new and some old nice singletracks on Nøtterøy
Biggest fail of today was that I rode without gloves. Went great last week and yesterday. But today on tight singletracks with trees on the side I really missed my gloves, got a scar after a tree hit my hand, or how it was ;) 750mm handlebar isn’t always best, but mostly. The Tune Türnstange is really stiff compared to what I expected, worth every penny.
Starting to train a bit more now as the CX season soon starts :) Or just because it’s sunny awesome summer in Norway and I got 5 bikes at home. Today a friend announced a ride on Facebook and as I didn’t have anything proper to do I joined him. First mtb ride since tuesday last week. Got showed some really nice trails with super view:
With me with Tønsberg behind:
Just after this Tom punctured and me pump wasn’t so good so steered our bikes towards his home to pump it up proper. After that we rode some in the Esso forest before going back against Tønsberg on some nice trails. Great ride
Got out on my bike today after work, with the thought that I can’t just lay on the sofa after riding so much last week. Planned an easy ride to Worlds End and back. Eating an ice cream too.
A little headwind and something wrong with my shoes (sad to say but my Mavic’s feels better than my Sidi’s) made me have a harder time than I planned. But awesome weather :)
Came to Worlds End and they didn’t have any ice cream :( Took a selfie instead:
On the way back it felt better, never on the small ring in front and even felt fast at some moments. Great feeling and I think that this Fana IL jersey from Craft is the best jersey I got, perfect fit, feels light, a zip pocket in the middle and even opening the zipper in front halfways it sits tight.
