Sunday Funday

The forecast said a bit colder and cloudy compared to Saturday, my mind thought about a restday.

Everything changed and it became a great little ride with some great people. Le Mond hangarounds 😉 Changing roads that where good, icy, snowy, wet, dry, fast and slow made it sometimes challenging and sometimes easy. But always fun.

Was an Insta-ride so here’s a lot of pictures from the ride:

the black boredom

November is here for real and people seems to disappear inside. The darkness is here and weather is something between snow and rain.

I feel slow and a bit bored and starting to think about things I didn’t do in the sunlight. Why didn’t I ride more long rides, why didn’t I ride gravel outside Borås, why did I take the short loop last day on Dalsland runt, why didn’t I go to Bergen, why didn’t I have an ice-cream date?

It’s easy to look back and regret. But it’s worth look back at what I did, or what you did. I’ve been riding my bike with great people in Sweden, Norway, France and Italy. I may not found the love of my life but I tried (maybe in the wrong way). I have spent time with my best friends, and regular friends. I have made new friends of different types. I have seen new beautiful places that I never will forget. I have seen that love is bigger then terrorists. I have got together with some good friends and had a social life outside cycling. I tried to keep friendships alive. I’ve got out of my comfort zone sometimes and pushed the limits.

Learning is a part of life and I learnt that wasted energy and time on people without time isn’t worth it no matter how much you want to spend time with them.

Let’s discover new places with the best people.

Sunday instaride

This weekend has God showed us a glimpse of why Sweden is the best country with its 4 seasons. My legs got dropped yesterday but had to ride today too and with Emile as pathfinder I knew it would be epic, awesome and a real test for me Sequoia handling all sorts of terrain. Today was the first ride we talked about getting dropper seatposts on our all terrain bikes for example 😉

Rode to Gladö Kvarn, had a fika at Rosenhill (my first time there) and met a running race in Lida before we went home along the water.

Living the biggest city in Sweden with so close to gravel, small roads and great trails is a luxury worth a lot. Now selected pictures from us:
