The impossible happened !!! I went out on my MTB again in the forest yesterday. The first time since …. well. I don’t really remember actually. But it must have been somewhere before Milla was born. 2 Years we are talking now !! A shame that is. But I guess that is just my own fault.
But I am so glad I did it. Only a bit of hard work due to the fact that I crashed with the bike on the ride home from work on Friday, and my ribs and right-hand wrist are still hurting a bit too much. And the other being the fact that I never have been in this forest so deep in winter-time. So I never realised that it would be frozen over all over the place. Most of the downhills look like this, where the white spots are pure ice-sheets:
Not too bad you would say, until you get to these bits:
Normally on any given day, you would swoosh down there around 30-35 km/h. Now, I almost fell just walking down the little hill. Crazy stuff that was. And that just went on and on for the rest of the trip.
But it was ooohhh soooo worth it !!! Looking forward to next sunday morning already !!!
