We rode around a lake

I know my limitations and when it was talking about a 137km ride with start at 10 with fast people I thought of something else. Didn’t want to ride until the darkness arrived and didn’t want to bonk halfway.

Instead my best gravelguide Emile made a 73km route around Bornsjön which me, Emile and Petra started. Going along Mälaren in the beginning is always a success and the gravel at Bornsjön is really nice. Some singletrack to spice it up and walking down a never ending stair made the Emileroute complete. Always need to walk a bit and always need to hate some roots :p

Mostly beautiful and fun road with ice on one side, we did it English style and rode on the left side 😉 Even when all of us had studs.

First ride this winter where I got use of both my Café du Cycliste wintertights and innergloves too, felt warm and cozy in the beginning but a bit warm in the end. Started with a vest on but it gets warm when I’m out of shape so went off pretty fast 😉

All in all a great Saturday with some tiredness in the end and after Emile left home it was just Alex who joined in Slagsta who had some powers left 😉

Some days are better than others and when the sun is out, the roads are dry and Adam made a route to a great fika place, then you know it will be a day to remember. Adam wanted to to go Ösmo so he planned a nice route from his place and invited some friends. We came and met up.

Got fast asphalt riding.

Got low energy feel.

Got great fika.

Got dry fast ice.

Got a nice (or two) walks in the dry snow.

Got use of 42-42 gearing.

And we all got a day to remember instead of just missing summer.
