Maybe the most Swedish word is fika, isn’t available in any other language and every cyclist should know it. Fika means to have a coffee and a cake or something like that, just because it’s good. Different from lunch which is more healthy and for a reason.
We where 5 riders in the facebookgroup Fikacykling Le Mond which met on Le Mond this morning and aimed for Ösmo and the gardencafé there. Started pretty good but it started to rain so we took cover while it was passing:
Then continued on some new roads for me, so not the shortest way. Felt pretty good and did pretty much of the work in front. Great feeling. Last open part was very windy, but with a lot of riders out :)
Then fika, sat outside but the sun disappeared so we went inside instead:
Then they said it was time to go back to Stockholm again. Hard time in the beginning but found some power again on the small nice roads :) Christopher and Emil wasn’t in top shape so slowed down a bit sometimes and got time to take a picture:
Nice to have a breatpocket to have the phone in :)
After riding for around 3h I started with some signsprints. Nice to even think about sprints after riding for so long :) But didn’t got any company so had to do it myself. Rode a nice road to Länna in the end where Emil seemed a bit tired ;)
Back in Stockholm I joined the others going into town instead of going directly home. Left them on Söder and aimed for La Chemise to pick up some nice new clothes. Got passed by a Ferrari 360 on my way but passed it again ;) Picked my clothes and headed back home. Got stuck with all the people as Gumball 3000 starts this weekend, a lot of cool cars:
And a lot of people.
Got back home and after having After Bike on the balcony and a nice shower I tried my new clothes. Le Peloton style :D
Felt really nice and looking forward to ride with them :)
