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.


Ha! Must have been Foothill. Was up and down through there three or four times last week.

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:


That's where I train when I'm not in Switzerland! :thumbup:

Studded tyres are too expensive, my whole winter bike doesn't cost as much.

Sunny but somewhat cold day. Woke up and was surprised by the weather so I had breakfast and rode off!

For those of you posting without locations designated in your user profile, could you at least post the location of your photos?

Well not far from the city of Athens in Greece. The mnt is named Parnitha, not exactly the alps but still a 1400m summit. Happy new year to everyone!

@ GAser

I visit Athens on business occasionally, whats the best way to get out of the city by bike if your hotel is not far from the Accropolis ?

Can you recommend a train destination from the city centre ?

Cheers

You need to take the train, probably from Omonia to Kifissia terminal, then ride about 5 km north to Varibobi. One of the nicest road rides from Varibobi to Katsimidi or alt a reach network of trails and fire roads around to the Vasilika area. PM me for more info if you wish.

The following photo is from yesterdays ride.
I was right on my way to take a KOM from Florian Vogel on the Etzel, when this happened:

It was impossible to continue riding as the road was one big ice rink..
