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.

One from the last day of the 2019. We decided to go into town to watch the fireworks, because we haven’t done that in a long time with the kids. And why not make it a whole afternoon and go to the movies before??? Otherwise I don’t think they would have wanted to go into town.

The surprise was waiting for the bus to get home with apparently half of the neighborhood. Luckily we have a daughter who is 13 and travels a lot by bus and had the perfect plan B route. Even better than the original!!!

January with all its boring weather. But, you try to make the most of it. It wasn’t bad at all. Almost no wind and just a bit of a drizzle in the air. No heavy rainfall.

The only thing I was really worried about was my tennis-elbow and how it would hold up. I knew that as long as I wouldn’t have too much pain on the fun sections, I would probably go for it and try to ignore the pain. So, it will be interesting to see how the elbow is behaving tomorrow.

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.
