Guess what, winter sucks! Dark, cold and snowy. I'm freezing and don't wanna go outside any more. Naaaw... I'm just kidding. Winter is awesome and it's me who's been lazy the last two months. But to be honest. We had quite a rough one this year. Two kinds of weather, super cold or super snow. … Continue reading The Fat Awakens
After seven days of constant snowing, resulting in a new record, 113 cm, the sun showed her face again. I finally got to take a little ride on the ice before work. It's a blessing to get out for about 30 minutes and do this. The iceroad goes aroud our town and is a great … Continue reading Back on the ice
Everything went according to plan. Slam69 delivered the new cranks from Raceface and i fitted them on my lunch break today. After fitting the cranks and having a quick snack i had about 15 minutes for a test ride. I took a spin down the harbor. It´s just right down the street, about a … Continue reading 30 seconds to nowhere
All of a sudden the seasonal trails start to wake up. Still no snow up here but cold weather allows the ice take control over our archipelago. It amazes me every year. How a whole new world gets easy access. Soon we'll be able to ride across the ice and hit new trails never ridden … Continue reading Bothnia ice race and new trails
Since temperature has dropped to comfy -16°c(?) I took a little spin up river today. A damp warm beginning of winter. Followed by a few super cold weeks and no snow dumping has made the ice perfect for riding. You can literally ride any where you like. Go in one direction and just, hey! I … Continue reading Ice ice baby
Winter sure is coming and the temperature i dropping way below zero. But still no snow! Normally i don't mind if the fluffy white stuff waits a few extra weeks. But this year i just can't wait to try the fat bike at packed snowmobile trails. Still, we just got a few centimeters. I took … Continue reading Icebreakers waking up
Just got to post this video from 45NRTH. http://vimeo.com/69985416 I must admit that i´ve always had a bit of angst when autumn i starting to show her first signs. But since i joined the Fat bike world i have started longing for winter and trail riding on frozen, snowy trails.
Finally it feels like spring is starting to get a grip of things up here. March is really a slow month, it´s so in between winter and summer. But now the the sun is really warming up and the roads starts to be free from ice. I acctually rode the whole way to work on … Continue reading Spring is in the air.
The flu i´ve got has now moved on to my kids. The small one has blown out his own body weight in snot. The older one sounds like an old crow. Poor things. So the plans for a day out on the ice are canceled. Yesterday the Bothnia ski-competition was held. Unfortunately i was stuck … Continue reading The great indoors. (Makes you think.)
To wake up with two happy kids and a crazy spring sun. The headeake from the flu is fading. I can even breathe through my nose to day. That feeling is hard to beat. That is the magic of the little things. We get up, fix breakfast. I´m finally coming around after a couple of … Continue reading The little things.
