As in “somebody is going to get really badly hurt if they keep going like this”. Crashing all over the place. It’s a miracle nobody broke anything on this ride or ended up in the hospital. Seriously the craziest ride I have ever been on with friends.

First trip to the bikepark

It’s not my photo, but a friend’s and I am in it. Our first trip of the year to Vallåsen Bike park. What a day. Nice to be out there with good friends and do the thing you love. Ending the evening with a few beers. What a weekend, can’t wait until the next one.

And it makes one long back to Austria, where there was more flow, longer runs and bigger stuff to ride on.

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….

Out with Da Boyz. Getting dirty and wet in the local mud. Testing the limits a bit of what one (at this age) can do on a mountainbike. Followed by food and drinks at G-man’s place. Such a nice way to spend a day in good company.

OK, there is a tiny risk he might just drop off the edge and land on top of Mr P, but we’re boys. Pretending to be 25 and having a laugh out there. That keeps us young!

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.
