wind+bad legs=like tailwind

Was thinking of going out to beautiful Skjelanger today but very windy outside and riding for over 2h back home in headwind wasn’t what my legs wanted. Maybe I will ride out there next sunday. The end is a small great road with great landscape surrounding. Really like to ride out there, only sad thing is that is the same way back home.

Today I rode to Åsane and out the the Nordhordaland bridge before going home a long the coast. Too windy sometimes so don’t think the forecast with 11m/s was so accurate, except the direction. Wind from east so after passing Åsane and going the long ”straight” road to the Nordhordaland bridge was awesome. Riding along with my heaviest gear 38-12 without pushing any limits and felt pretty good for a while. Stopped before Salhus and before my feelings changed too much to take a couple of photos. First the Nordhordaland bridge in the background of my SuperX, northern Europe’s longest floating bridge what I know:

and with me trying my new helmet and being warm in my Assos fuguJack 😉

Then the legs stood straight out, the wind loved me and I had to use my lightest gear more than once on my way back home. But when I came to Eidsvåg and should ride up it was great with tailwind again. Usually want to ride over 20km/h, today I was riding at 26km/h and that with 35mm CX tires with just 3bar in them 🙂

Back home checking Strava I saw that i was faster half a year ago. Rode the same ride at 6 in the morning with my Evo 12min faster. Not extremely much faster with 7-800g lighter bike, 20mm higher rims, 13mm slimmer tires and 12 tooths more on the crank. 😉 (using same cassette). The ride today: Movescount
