I just have to get out and bike a bit every now and then to not go insane. It’s been 2,5 weeks now since I have been in the office. First week I was sick in bed myself, but now I have been working from home for the last 1,5 weeks. And I’m wondering when it will end.
This one has been here for a few weeks now. And I am wondering when they gonne clean it. I don’t mind and I can imagine
a lot of runners and dog-walkers don’t mind either. It’s those on their hordes. It is after all a horse trail. Even if
I haven’t seen a horse on it in the 5 years I have been commuting along this path.
OK, I rarely swing by there in the evenings anymore, I have more fun trails to ride on than a gravel road. But in the
mornings it’s perfect to warm up and don’t get too exhausted before work.
Yip, another one of Tuesday afternoon/evening. And actually a few minutes before previous photo. This is where I climb for about just
over 10 minutes and take in the view, before I rush down in the open field and get into the forest again.
The old lights for the bike where done. Just went black during one of the rides home. Luckily
I knew where I was and it wasn’t in the middle of the forest!!! So I had to go and buy something
new. I had my eyes on some Gloworm lights, which
get really good reviews. But the problem is that they are expensive and…. I need them NOW! Not
in a few weeks.
So off I went to the local shop and got me some good old Magicshines
again. Only this time I decided to go for the best and brightest they had. Behold … 6500 lumen.
Of course you have to take that with a grain of salt. And how long do they last? But so far so
good on the first couple of rides. A lot more light in the forest, which makes a lot of difference.
A new sign in the middle of the forest!!?? I know there is a horse trail close by, but in my 5+ years of commuting here, I have never seen a horse on this section. I wonder if this is from the people at the Botanical Gardens as well. They have been doing quite a lot of changes here the last couple of months. And quite aggressively as well if you ask me. Is this just to make their presence even more clear?
