Most excellent, Tugboat!

In Norway we actually have summer this July, as opposed to last year. Found some cattle to match my new kit today.

At Col de la Croix de Fer a couple of weeks ago direction Col du Glandon, with finger. Turned around and suffered badly going back up to La Toussuire, overgeared at 34x25.

At least you won't have an iron deficiency.

hey thanks! We do have a great countryside with lots of small roads. Come and visit! I'm happy to make suggestions about where to ride.
ps There is also plenty of "visual pollution" but I tend to cut that out

From a couple weeks ago. Rode from Averoya Island over the Atlantic Ocean Road towards the former fishing village Bud, and back again. The weather could have been better but it was still awesome :D
