Going green

For one who loves food, Christmas can be a heaven. It's often not easy to resist something you're offered just once a year. So because I know I will be eating a lot of fatty (yummy) food during a couple of days, I've been adding more green stuff on my plate than usually. And I might stick to that even after Christmas.

Your body will thank you for adding that green stuff on the plate

I also found this neat video on velonews, from Haute Route 2012. It's a 7 day 7 stage cyclosportive across the Alps/Pyrenees, and is one of the things I want to do before my days on the bike are over. It is said to be the toughest cyclosportive in the world.

Enjoy your Saturday evening!

Do you recognize yourself?

Cyclists often talk a lot, and we tend to sound really professional to people who know nothing about cycling. Even more important is how you talk to your fellow cyclists. I found this neat video and really recognized myself from it, and got a good laugh! This video is actually made by people with a good cause, to improve the future of bicycling for everyone.

I am for bikes. I'm for long rides and short rides. I'm for commuting to work, weekend rides, racing, riding to school, or just a quick spin around the block. I believe that no matter how I ride, biking makes me happy and is great for my health, my community and the environment we all share. That is why I am pledging my name in support of a better future for bicycling—one that is safe and fun for everyone. By uniting my voice with a million others, I believe that we can make our world a better place to ride.

And the video!


And for all of you in southern latitudes, this is how it looks up here in northern Europe at the moment. Not taking the bike out... not yet.
