Phew! What better way to spend Midsummer celebrations than riding a bike for 24 hours. Wait, what? 😀
April was exciting, during May I traveled, and now it is already June. Wasn’t it Christmas just a moment ago? A lot has happened, and only now I have finally time to write about all the things! I don’t want to put them all in one post, so I will be writing 3 instead. This one will be for my cycling news 🙂
Saturday was a lovely day! The weather was celebrating my Birthday with me, so I decided to go out for a ride on my road bike to see how much the near-by bike lanes had been cleaned. I had to take a bus to work on Friday, and I saw that the road was cleaned all the way to the bus stop by the motorway, and it looked like the road continued clean from there, so I had to go and check just how far it was cleaned 😀 And because it was above 10ºC, I could manage with one layer of clothing! Okay, 2! I had to wear 2 shirts just in case, haha. But oh, the joy! I felt so light, and the bike was lovely to ride properly after so long!
Last week we had a couple of warm days! It was so nice to skip a layer or two of clothing after work for the commute, making getting dressed so much faster, haha! It didn’t last very long, though. On Thursday evening I was kicking some ice on the side of the street so that I could spread it out so it would melt faster when I realized it was raining a little. Yay! I was in for a nasty surprise when morning came, however. It had started snowing during the night, and we had 5cm of snow on the ground! NO! 😥
Mom convinced me to go to our gym this morning to attend karaoke spinning class again. I don’t remember if I’ve told you guys about it before, but basically it’s a spinning class where you can sing a karaoke song and others cycle to the music. It’s super fun, and I was so glad I went after so long of skipping it, haha. However, me going to the spinning class is not why I am writing this post 😉
The moment I got my new bike, I had a problem with my rear light. The plan was to just switch the lights from my Culebro to the mountain bike, but that didn’t work as well as I had hoped. The reason? Someone had cut the flex tight bracket too short. So even though it fits now my road bike and before Dad’s cyclocross perfectly, it was too short for the tiny bit thicker mountain bike seat post. To make the situation even worse, there weren’t any lights that I liked in the stores nearby, and it was still very dark outside. And of course, I wanted to go ride right away!
What do you get when you add boredom on Friday evening, cycling and yours truly? After a while of surfing through various interesting sites, you get a website with the title randonneuring.
