Fløyen with Dan Erik again

I’m not used to train every day. But this week isn’t usual. The sun is shining from a blue sky, the forrest is dry like never before and I love to ride mtb in the autumn in this awesome weather. Like this lovely autumn rides I did in Sweden like once a year, but now every day. And with a gorgeous view 😀

Rode almost the same as yesterday today except we took it a bit easier in the start and then pushed the pedals up a Strava segment, 8.49 instead of 9.24 climbing so going up 🙂 Then we rode a pretty easy but nice singletrack that I haven’t ridden for over a year. Up to Brushytten and down around with a photoshoot:

Dan Erik skipped Fløyen Rock Garden today as he said he doesn’t want to die. I did a personal record and is now the second fastest that segment 🙂 Funny that the singletrack I haven’t dared to ride before isn’t any problem now, great development. Rode as much great singletracks I know of on the way down and Fjellveien back home. Great start of the day 🙂

Great training, great views and some good singletracks but will change place for riding tomorrow. Think I will go up to Krohnegården before work as it was a long time since last time. 😀 Top shape soon 😉

Tabergs finest

What a day. Nice singletracks, good food, ice cream, good friends and okey weather. Eskil showed me and Hampus the best around Taberg including the Tabergs top that is 346m or around there over the sea. A mountain sticking up as you can see here with Eskil and Hampus watching the view:

Think I have to try a good 29er too, or just train more/better as I had a hard time keeping up. Lowered my pressure a bit so 20psi today which was much better than yesterday. Great tyres those Tufo XC4.

Rode up between the cows on a very steep field, almost made it. All three almost made it, had to get of the bike one time each. Hard climb but fun when you’re up and interesting when you are on the lowest gear, high heart rate and feeling that you can’t manage to get the pedals around you still can make it 🙂 Rode down a nice singletrack with many technical mistakes from me but great training and fun trail. On the bottom looking up it’s pretty steep:

Great ride, and here is the stats from the 2h: Movescount
