The winter is a great time to dream. Dream about warm days riding bikes in cool places. Riding like there was no end and no road is too far or too bad. Explore the beautiful world we live in together. Without dreams it will be hard to train, hard to be motivated and boring. We need to dream, bigger, further, better, new.
Riding in rain, getting cold, when it’s snowing, riding as hard as you can and go beyond. Everything is worth it if you have a dream. A goal to reach. Maybe it’s unreachable but maybe you will get closer to it. And if you try there is a chance to get there.
If you don’t try, you will never reach the dream.
Give it a try!
A bike built on a dream to reach further is Cannondale Slate, they went all the way:
My Diverge is more for me but this bike is pushing the limits.
Let’s set the known behind a go discover the unknown in 2016, together and enjoy the beautiful world God created for us to ride in:
The winter temperatures are here. today was time to use my Assos winterjacket, only to be used when it’s really cold. Just cold so just had a thin short armed base layer underneath. Tried my fleece lined bibs and leg warmers too if they could handle they cold. Was awesome :) Only thing that wasn’t awesome was my gloves but I survived.
Rode with Emile to Liljeholmstorget and met up with some more people. Rode over Essingen to Brommaplan and met up with the rest. A lot of people gathered for a ride that was started by a question at work and spread through Facebook, mouth, sms and Messenger.
Even if I like my Diverge I tried horseriding today. Was super fun and Camilla captured the adventure:
Have to enjoy extra breaks when Jimmie had a puncture. Wasn’t as funny when Isabella had a broken chain and we had to wait again but as sunny:
A fun day that maybe wasn’t the best way to train but good for motivation and love to see new places with great people :)
Dropped the bar a 5mm more and met up with 3 others at bikecafé Le Mond this morning in the cold but sunny day. Rode the Le Peloton CX-loop in an easy way and was interesting testing my new bike on gravel, climbs, descends and bad roads.
All I can say is that it felt great. Butter smooth :)
We were not so many today, 3 more joined and the superfast guys are missing. Really slippery morning to with temperatures around 0° C which took down two guys already before we gathered. Wonder how it went for the 2 doing the roadloop in this weather.
The CX-loop was like usual and while no one is superfast we are a group working good together and making life hard for the rest ;) Me, Calle, Niklas, Michael and Christian is the usuals keeping the pace proper and having a great time together.
It felt easy today but I couldn’t have gone faster, feels like my body tells me to take it easy and so I will this week. Christian crashed on the way back on a descend which had everything stop up a bit, he was okey but were only 3 guys afterwards in the first group. Was a bit off for a second until we got some pace back. In the end Calle tried to attack and I hanged on. Until in a tight corner were I lost my front wheel :(
Got back up and rode the last seconds of the Strava segment and it just hurt a little after my crash. Said goodbye to Calle and Michael who wasn’t going to Le Mond and rode towards bikecafé Le Mond alone. Saw my jacket had a red spot on my arm and thought if I was bleeding from my head. I wasn’t and hadn’t touched the ground with ot. Was my left hip that was bleeding :(
It made my day at work a bit painful but I will survive and as long as it’s nothing worse I can take it.
More funny was that bikecafé Le Mond got awarded as the best café in Stockholm :D
Happy for Kalle and Corina making this the place to be :D
When you are two friends who works together, have the same type of bike it’s pretty fun to ride together. Or extra fun. Me and Jaime did a gravelride on our Crux bikes this morning before work. With blue sky, sunrise and a bit slow body.
Ended at Vivels before coming to work and Jaime to this great picture of me and our bikes:
