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??

It’s part of the commuting life. You could turn in your bike to a bike shop and pay for it. But the bikes get abused so much during the dark time of the year by rain, mud, snow and ice.

The problem is that I don’t know all this stuff. But….. that’s where youtube comes in handy. 20 years ago you had to go as an apprentice during the weekends to learn all this. Now it’s all a click away. Some favorites:

And when you make a mistake, you just start all over. The advantage of having 2 bikes, I guess. Always one ready to bike with and one to tinker with….

Luckily I passed by here a few hundred times and know my way around.

Last week…. The boys and I drove down to Austria. To go riding our MTBs. The.Best.Thing.Ever!!!!

This is your typical shot of the day. Mountains looming in the distance all around you. Gondolas to get quickly to the top and just all day long riding down.

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.
