She Rides to Drömkåken

Christ went to Heaven, we went to Drömkåken. Thank God for life.

Free day from work means cycling and when it’s great summer weather in early May it had to be a long one. Plan was to ride to Drömkåken with some She Rides Ambassadors and it all started at a museum:

Met up with Ann-Sofie and headed north to meet up the rest. Met up Pia who was today’s awesome guide. Magic roads and great speed, great group. Met up with Noor and her friends at Vikskolan and then the adventure started after 40km:

After a little more than 60km more we came to Drömkåken where I was more focused on coffee and cake than on pictures.

Only picture, of my awesome Specialized S-Works Sub6 shoes and Gelatosocks that really suits me.

There I also met a couple of friends, but just the best looking of them (sorry Håkan) on picture:

Linda rode with Stockholm City Triathletes and rode a shorter route before they continued to Uppsala.

We rode south towards home instead 😉 With a stop where our group got split into two

Great to ride with Noor again. So different but so matchy today with Evade helmets, Jawbreaker glasses, She Rides clothes and Specialized Tarmac bikes 😉

3 left going on a super road, small roads that goes a little up and down in the middle of nowhere is so nice to ride on.

Left Pia in Täby and me and Ann-Sofie rode back to Stockholm again, a long day in the saddle (a good saddle) but with soft tempo so after I got left alone and crossed the central Stockholm I rode some more bridges to come up to 200km 😉 The stats you know. Stats here: Strava

And ending with a idolpicture you can print and put up on your wall. If you meet me I can sign it for you 😉

#58 a day in the saddle under the sun

There is a Challenge on Strava to ride half of Tour de France while they race it. I’m ranked 58 after today 🙂 Enjoying it as long as it lasts as I won’t manage to complete it or keep the place.

It all started at 8. Met up with 5 nice guys close to the Globe here in Stockholm. The plan was a 200km ride on nice roads southwest of Stockholm. Like the last week to Mariefred but better and with riding home instead of a ferry.

Was doing climbs:

With Peter M in front:

Waited for a small ferry at Skanssundet:

Me today after almost 2h:

Had fun:

A new small road in the middle of nowhere, much better than last weeks ride 🙂

Emil enjoying the beautiful 8,5km gravelroad:

me again on gravel:

hard to not push when the gravelroads are that good. There is a difference with riding hard on gravel compared to asphalt. The others in line after:

The blue guys:

This was after this years first bath:

Out swimming a little before this picture, old school swimclothes. Great with Cafe du Cycliste Antoinette sometimes:

All riders was in the lake to the bibs to cool down a bit in the summer heat:

Then we had lunch and rode some more. Was a bit crispy in the end so happy with the stop at Sturehofs castle:

Back home I don’t look that brown but my body is doing all it can to mention it’s there and that it has been working for a long time with many muscles today 😉
