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.
Peace and quiet.
According to my current Endomondo.com account stats, in 2013. i managed to cover 4063 km until Nov 3rd 2013. 🙂
Breakdown by each activity would be like this:
Cycling,transport=2667 km. (~65 %)
My only way of transport to/from work, groceries, getting things done during the whole year. As well as in previous 6-7 years, but this year decided to keep the exact statistics.
Mountain biking=994 km. (~25%)
Mostly during the weekends, on the local mountain.
Best year so far. Started running during the 2012.
Also the way for getting things done, deliveries, walking with my kids.
Some small hiking on the local mountain, also with the kids 🙂
Hope to reach 5000 km by the end of 2013.
Example of one of my frequent routes with mountain bike.
Start was at 5:52 AM,early ride :), end around 8:30 AM. That way i have the whole day in front of me for all other interests, but most important for my kids.
