After work today me and John took our SuperX bikes and looking for the perfect CXcourse in the centre of Bergen. First of to the park of Nordnes where we found a little but a bit to compact and small. Then Nygårdspark where it seemed really nice. Gravel, asphalt, a lot of grass, a hill, a couple of nice wooden bridges where you have to have good tires and a bit more. Came up with a course that seems pretty nice but not so long, around 750m (missed a part on my gps) and 3min in 80% speed. Nygårds CX on the Mapd and Graph for today: TrainingPeaks CX
It has a tree where you should run over, a water to ride around and over a wooden round bridge, maybe a stonepath if it’s not full of ducks and people. got an idiotic stair (tight and some running afterwards) and a climb that is just mad. Had to try it first just seeing it and thought, this will never be rideable. And it wasn’t in that place but we placed to course under a tree so a bit dryer and I got up once.
So now just gather some people and ride, and maybe get the course even longer (many possibilities). Also rode an extra part but was just along the water and then turning around. Except on the way from Nygårdpark we tried to ride on a small (too small) beach that ended with to even more wet cyclists that had to get out of the water. The beach was too small so had to ride in the water.
So even if it’s raining, is wet and not as warm as in Sweden or more south you can enjoy riding a bike here. Thanks John for that🙂
