Bike to work 2016-05-21 under the searing Swiss Sun. About 17 km in under fifty minutes (I need to charge my GPS to be more precise). Sweaty, hot, hills, a few flies swallowed.
Glad that you came home alive!
Oh well, if only I had looked in my secondary bag, I would have found not only my pull-over, but also a light rain jacket, both things that would have been perfect to avoid getting drenched… But in defense of my levity, I’ve had the perfect weather when I went biking to work ; the storm waited five minutes only before the end of my shift to begin.
Bike to work
It’s incredible how fast bike performances are coming back, even after six months of winter during which I switched to walking. Bike-to-work today was sweaty and hard, but very manageable. And I found a new path in the green hills of Fribourg with more cows than ever.
The Sun is now out for three consecutive days, and so are flies, noisy children and farmers clogging the roads on their tractors. Three reasons to spend more time at an average 20 kph, away from the pesky humans (at least three persons tried to talk to me today, that was very disturbing).
Just back from a little bike tour around Romont. About 15 km in one hour, with a lot of hills. It was a lot better than this year inaugural trip, and I’m feeling a very obvious improvement in my bike muscles, even if they are still aching (and so is my butt).

The raddest kid in a 200 km radius.
I took a serious gamble for today’s bike-to-work (2015-11-17), I honestly thought I would come back home under the rain. But the rain was courteous enough to wait for me to park my bike in the basement, then take my shoes off in my flat to begin to fall and for that, I have to admit that audentes Fortuna iuvat.
A little more than 17 km in exactly one hour, mostly hills, perfect cool weather.
BTW 2015-11-07. Excellent weather, mostly hills, about 12 km in 45 minutes.
On the last panel, a cool variation of a very Swiss thing, the atisanal sign informing that children play in the vicinity with the admonestation “slow down, it won’t kill (you)”.
BTW 2015-11-06 – very nice weather, another occasion to ride to work. About 17 km in a little more than an hour, mostly hills.
