Left home 10.15 today with the goal to ride far and get very tired just wheelsucking. 5h with 3 elite riders sounds hard.
Got some Nature Power Nutrition from Multipower at Veloshop (so easy to eat no matter temperature). And then headed towards the meeting place. Bugge was very late so started with a long talk with my Joker boss. Left half an hour later than planned and aimed for Hvasser, a nice harbour out on an island. Rode some new roads for me that I will remember instead of just riding straight like I did to the worlds end last tuesday. Really warm with over 30° C.
Stopped in Hvasser after I had ridden 1h39min and got something to drink from the local Joker store and enjoyed the sun. Then the discussion started about boats that never ended, we should have a boat.
Rode back to the mainland and stopped at Bryggan in Tønsberg to come up with where to ride. Rode to Ringshaug (bathing place). Met Bugge’s brother and the Norwegian U23 National Champion for a chat before we decided to take a bath. Warm and super idea, dried fast in the sun:
After a while there we rode home again. Martin left at my place for Stokke. Niklas a bit earlier to Nøtterøy together with Bugge who rode a bit extra before going to Horten. Slacker ride with more thoughts on why we didn’t have a boat instead of cycling. 😉
The ride of today that made me tired and ready for a 9 day rest (working with Team Joker in France): Movescount
