A mere test ride (I was testing my legs...) Spinned gently to the start of the Coll de Parpers (a gentle climb amidst dense vegetation on fine tarmac). Went over the top and plummeted down to the sea.  Conclusions: I'm really behind schedule.

Saturday, January 14, 2012


Cold and quiet. Even the gentle humming of tyres seemed  out of place in such a noiseless world.
Stillness in the air, not a single leave moving, nothing... just the lonely cyclist feeling like an intruder into a frozen scene.
Could not avoid a vague sensation of elation.

Winter training

A frosty morning but with brevets looming... better retake training. More over,  "randonneuring season" starts a tad early this year and I'm fully aware that I'm alarmingly behind schedule.

Christmas Eve

City touring (fixed, obviously) on Christmas Eve. A typical winter day, cold and grey. The beach is deserted (or nearly). A forlorn sight...
