Le Peloton #139

Trying to have an easy week this week so after two days of just commuting it was time for some speed today, or trying to get some.

Met up with the usuals and the Ekström brothers who came after the picture was taken of course. Started in manageable speed and I tried to be calm and just keep the wheel. Did some chasing down to Saltsjö-Duvnäs and then it was time for Stationsbacken where I managed to hold on to the others almost all the way up. Dropped in the end but it came a car at the roundabout and the others had to wait and I got back up again. Held wheel up Ektorp but then my legs burnt and I dropped the first 5 at Storängen…

Lonely slow riding to Sickla and to Älta I was almost 3min slower than the first group. Took the shortcut in Älta and on Flatenvägen the group caught me. Perfect shortcutting and I got on their wheel again. Managed to hold on until the final uphill and sprint.

It was hard but it was a good morning. And I’m happy that I didn’t sleep instead 😀

Also started the celebration of Cykelcafé Le Mond who got 3 years old today:

8 riders today, let’s hope the spring comes for real soon so we can fill the café 🙂
