Up the Mountains High!

Continuing with my training schedule today I headed for the mountains. Quiet roads, scenic views and a judicious (knee saving) use of the granny gear. Average speed 17,5 km/h (incluiding cafè au lait stop and picture taking). It seems I'm making progress...

Note: did not ride the gravel road (it's in my thing-to-do list anyway)

A balmy sun finally showed up at mid-morning. Days are getting colder.

A charming autumm ride just before breaking a spoke. Trying to insert a spare spoke without extracting the cassette is... challenging (I was carrying a non-compatible cassette wrench)
