#58 a day in the saddle under the sun

There is a Challenge on Strava to ride half of Tour de France while they race it. I’m ranked 58 after today🙂 Enjoying it as long as it lasts as I won’t manage to complete it or keep the place.

It all started at 8. Met up with 5 nice guys close to the Globe here in Stockholm. The plan was a 200km ride on nice roads southwest of Stockholm. Like the last week to Mariefred but better and with riding home instead of a ferry.

Was doing climbs:

With Peter M in front:

Waited for a small ferry at Skanssundet:

Me today after almost 2h:

Had fun:

A new small road in the middle of nowhere, much better than last weeks ride🙂

me again on gravel:

hard to not push when the gravelroads are that good. There is a difference with riding hard on gravel compared to asphalt. The others in line after:

The blue guys:

This was after this years first bath:

Out swimming a little before this picture, old school swimclothes. Great with Cafe du Cycliste Antoinette sometimes:

All riders was in the lake to the bibs to cool down a bit in the summer heat:

Then we had lunch and rode some more. Was a bit crispy in the end so happy with the stop at Sturehofs castle:

Back home I don’t look that brown but my body is doing all it can to mention it’s there and that it has been working for a long time with many muscles today😉
