A beautiful day in the Zürcher öberland (Switzerland).
It was a real shame I didn't take my road bike with me on vacation, as the roads were dry and there was no salt to be seen.

I rode for 3.5 hours without wearing gloves!

wouldn't want to have my mtb stored like that. :doh:

Would be a nice submission for the "I do what I want" section at The Chive though. :mrgreen:

I am 99% sure I saw this bike on the road earlier this week. It was on Central in Los Altos. Pictures do not do any justice to how bright that green is in person. I did a full head turn when you rode past me in the opposite direction.

Last ride of the year, decided to take the mountainbike with me my while visiting my in-laws in Burgh Haamstede, The Netherlands. There's an 8 km long mountainbike route through the dune area. In the end I rode a bit to see the North Sea:

I decided not to try this one:

First training this year and first flat. Not a nice way to start a year.
