🪄 not doing any rides longer than 3,5 hours for 5 months and then get pissed when I don’t manage to do a 200km ride with 25kmh average 🪄
Watch me perform this magic trick live in my stories! ✌🏻
I usually smile when I’m on my bike but damn, yesterday really brought me out of my comfort zone. After a few days with 12 hours of work and little sleep, I was already pretty fucked when I took the train from Munich at 7 o clock in the morning yesterday. This is where the trouble started, because: I arrived 3h later than planned in Linz, where I wanted to follow the Danube to Vienna. The rails from Rosenheim to Salzburg where blocked so it was quite a journey and I had way too less layers to spend several hours outside in the morning cold and was freezing. So basically, when I arrived at Linz I had already missed 3h of daylight and I wasted much more on my stupid ride out of the city. Not blaming my bike computer or routing program, the error was sitting on the saddle! Then I got some headwind instead of tailwind, but luckily, it got better after a few more km ✌🏻 also, the weather was A M A Z I N G, as you can see. However, it broke my heart that all the beautiful restaurants where closed. In Ybbs, I found some butcher where I rewarded myself with a cold beer and some food and decided that with all the crap that happened today already, it’s time to let this day end. After 15h of waiting in the cold, 5 different trains and a lot of cycling also, I took the train back home from Melk. It was still a great adventure and beautiful route and I’m a bit proud on myself that I made it this far. 2 years ago, I would have probably quitted after the second incident that doesn’t work out as planned.
PS: i nearly cried when the chips didn’t came out of the vending machine tho. ✌🏻
