Saturday 8AM i met with a friend of mine to go on a ride and on the way test my new crankset, cassette, brakepads, disc rotor…
We did 36km of rough terrain.Week ago there was 30cm of fresh snow on the hill and -7 C. Today it was 12 C already in the morning, cloudy and windy on the hill.
Snow is gone except some small patches on the top of the hill. All is left is lot of mud under the carpet of leaves. That makes it pretty interesting to pedal uphill :).
Soft and slippery beneath the leaves, it is just even hard to push the bike uphill.
Amazing cycling photos from around the world!

They both move people forward without wasting anything.
The perfect day: riding a bike to the library.

Few days ago i purchased SONY action cam HDR-AS50 (why do they give them such complicated names? 🙂 )
Separately i had to buy bicycle mount for handlebar and strap mount for helmet.
All in all, with some discounts i got, it cost me 178 USD.
In the package, there is underwater housing capable to go 60m under the sea (for 30 minutes). I will not go that deep, just 4-8 meters maybe, but it will come handy for recording underwater landscape on my holiday.
Today i made first video while riding with my kid to kindergarten and then to work.
Videos need some processing and i will update this post later on.
In the meantime, here are more specifications and pictures of the cam.
Wednesday, June 22nd 2016. It was time for 6. or 7. round of “harvest” for elderflower. We like to make a syrup with elderflower so now is the one of last days to collect some more flowers, before they dissapear.
During the day, temperatures are already above 30 C, so i started early in the morning, 6:15. Just in time to reach the woods before the sun starts hitting in the open.
Made 40km of mostly trails, nice singletracks deep in the woods. Enjoyed picking the elderflower that smells so intense these days.
Second or third batch of elderflower i picked in the woods closer to my home, but they were not so fragrant like this from the hill (around 700-800 m above sea level). So i think it has to do with the clean air, different altitude where it grows and gets that wonderful, powerful fragrance.
Like the tea or coffee that is harvested higher in the mountains and is regularly more expensive because of different surrounding, the cleaner air and rain i guess.
This bee made a good company for some 30 seconds. I watched how she jumped over the flower looking for the nectar. Just managed to take a photo while i was holding the flower and then she disapeared, without saying goodbye 🙂
Didn’t post here for some time, partly because i was busy, partly because i got lazy writing :).
Short impressions from Monday ride, March 29th 2016.
Spring is here, i know it by the allergy that hits me in that period for the last 3-4 years.
Cloudy day, with temperature around 7C on top of the mountain.
39km and 2900kcal wasted on the trip!
