3h to 2h13min = fast bike?

My bike is aero, my bike is fast, my bike got Campagnolo, my bike got a Clavicula crank.

I planned a 3h ride. changed for a bit longer when I was on my way back home and came home after 2h and 13min. My body isn’t in good shape so have to be the bike 😉

Or that everything is so close here. Had great tailwind or no wind up to Horten. Passed Horten and going towards road 35 in great weather with ocean view:

Was happy:

And then the wind came. Headwind, uphills, crosswind and big fields not slowing the wind down. Survived but maybe a bit too hard riding. When I came to road 35 and steerer towards home it was more wind. First 10min headwind on a flat road on a open field until I came to Revetal. Afterwards the road still was boring but some small turns and ups and downs. Turned towards Ramnes to get rid of some wind. Ended up with headwind and uphill, hmm.

My bike didn’t care, it just kept on. Even got me thinking that I maybe should keep it instead of changing to an older bike, hmm. Rode a bit easier than usual from Sem and came home in sunshine.

Great soloride after work anyway and the bike was funny afterwards. Was taking the bottles out and I lift the bike while trying to get both out the same time. Light bike or strong bottle cages? 😉

puncture=change to tubular

Home after work today and stressed around with clothes and things to get out fast and meet some people to ride mtb with. Got my pump and should pump the tires, front one was okey but rear had lost all air and popped in so no chance to get air in it with my SKS Airbase pump 😦

stans on the floor and as I didn’t wash the bike after last ride it had dirt on the sidewalls. 😦 Changed for my Trek with tubulars and went to worlds end. Funny to name a place worlds end or Verdens Ende as it is in Norwegian. Over one island and in the end of next it is, 26,8km from here 😉 Nice ocean view on the last bridge out to Tjøme:

And the worlds end, looked pretty good. A summer day, riding out, take a swim and an ice cream in the sun 😀

Funny thing of today was that my bike started to make serious noises after 10km, thought for a while that the fork was broken as it sounded like carbon problems. Stopped and checked fork/headset and it felt good, held my hand on all wires as the can make noises but nothing changed anything. Then I checked the bottle, there it was. The bottle cage made noises being so close to the down tube. Much more contact area as the inside/back of the down tube is all flat. Will put a spaces between the frame and bottle cage to get it quiet.

Other funny thing is that I stopped adore Rapha so much as before, seems to mainstream and just selling to everyone on their name, nothing special. But anyway I wore a long sleeve jersey, a short sleeve jersey, a pair of pants, a pair of socks, a cycling cap and a musette from Rapha this week 😉 Think I have to change my wardrobe for the new cool brand coming up in next blog post.

Ending with a cycling path on my way back, cycling path all the way today
