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.

Snow this late??

No winter for the last couple of months. And now when we are waiting for spring to show up in its full glory we get snow??

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.

I mean, look at this!! Biking around in the forest and in the west you see this amazing light and colors. So lucky I can do this every day to get to work and back home.

PS: OK, I know…. this is not the best picture with that lamp, but it’s to give you an idea that you still need lights in the forest to see where to ride.

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?

We’ll see. I’ll keep you updated.

Again!!??

This is what it looked like again yesterday morning!! Not much and hard to see, but it was all slush. And luckily gone by the evening.
