29er

Winter Cycling Season Opened

The first snow has landed in Turku, and I guess it's here to stay. So it was time to gear up my 29er and head out. -1 degrees and light snowfall, almost perfect conditions for a short ride outdoors and a welcomed change for riding the trainer indoors.

Got home just before it was really dark

To be honest, that was really fun. Maybe winter is not that bad after all!? Now some hot mulled wine and something good to eat.

 

Enjoy your Saturday!

Influenza time

Sore throat, runny nose, aching muscles.. It's that time of the year again. There are ways to avoid the influenza besides keeping your hands clean and trying not to rub your face. Especially when living in these northern latitudes, when you don't see the sun, it's important to get enough vitamins. So because my eating habits are sometimes not the best, I did some shopping today. In the pharmacy that is..

Vitamin D, C and Omega 3 supplements ( I know there are doubts about these, but as long as you believe in them they'll work)

So I'll skip my workout today, eat healthy and work on that placebo effect!

PS. A 29er is awesome in snow!

Keep yourself warm!
