Great to be back on the bike in the sunny Mosel But 6 wks of travel, 1 of gastro & 1 of flu has left zero form
Can't think why we chose this restaurant. At least while Pratiwi is engrossed in menu there's some entertainment!
Tell us something we don't know #ReadItAndWeepCouchPotatoes
Just back from cycling. GPS says it was 35° out. Phew! Pratiwi thought she'd have some fun while I stretch: Bliss!
Post ride relaxation in the shade. Bit quiet today, where is everyone? #XmasDayBikeRideDone #NowForLunch
Feeling good on the 'train' after work How good is it to arrive home with mashed legs?! http://www.strava.com/activities...
Spotted in Barcelona: family of 5 travelling around by bike. So what was your excuse for not cycling touring again?
Was a bit of Strade Bianchi on the route today, so Cervelo needs a shower. Bike wash with a view outside our cottage!
Another nice trundle today. Snap of the view towards Kangaroo Valley from part way down Berry Mtn descent. Beautiful!
1500m climbed in only 60km today. Beautiful views on ride & for refreshments after. More of the same tomorrow please!
For poms who cry in 20° heat: my jersey after today's ride - & it's in this state a lot! GPS says 36° max. Nice!
Yes, an actual road sign at the bottom of today's 2nd climb. Who will take the wrong turn? #TdF #SBSTdF #OGERocks
Wow... Is it summer already? Snacking on banana bread after another great spin in the fantastic winter sunshine
Braving Autumn weather in Sydney Don't normally share pics from my 'ride like a tourist' route so please enjoy
What a joy to be back cycling in the Pyrenees. Glorious mid-winter's day. Just look at that, what's not to love?!
Another sunny day on the bike, but with wind & cold you cannot see. Brrrrr... Still, great views of & from Bonnieux.
Stunning day for a ride through Alpilles regional park. Felt more like a summer's evening than middle of winter!
View from today's ride at Col du Canadel. Bike would be in foreground, but so windy was blown over the edge! Doh!
View on today's ride, just below Col de Vignon. Could just (so no shot) see some snow capped mounts on other side
From today's ride: Lac d'Esparron, village of the same name & the crystal clear Verdon river by Gréoux-les-Bains.
Hitting some great hills above Cannes in sunshine & relaxing in the hotel garden. Hard to believe it's almost winter!
Killing time while car is serviced in Nice: cycle to Monte Carlo & back... via some nice hills with nice views
Today's ride: tootle the Sanremo bike path with Pratiwi. Then smash fest to Poggio. Then... well - when in Italy
Views from today's ride in the hills above Genoa. Very pleasant... if you can put up with getting in & out of city!
Best climb ever today: 205m vertical in 560m distance. Over 36% average! Or... bad GPS data. Which do you think?
Today's ride to Passo della Consuma & Vallombrosa. Stunning autumn colours descending through forest near the latter.
Today's ride: more cycling past olive groves in the Tuscan hills. These are near Doccia, NE of Florence. Very nice
After 2 weeks of playing in these hills above Florence, happened to stop at road works when the sun was out. Nice
New cassette, rings, chain, cables, brake pads & bar tape. Feels & looks great! And do you like the work stand?
Chain stretch? What chain stretch?! A PC-1091R with 5310km on goes in the bin (with the rings & cluster). Ouch!
This morning's ride was round a misty Lake Como. Menaggio to Bellagio. Shots on the ferry back home. Nice way to end.
Already at 1586m altitude but there's 36 hairpins left to do. Or you've done 72 if coming back down like I was!
Few of the 36 official hairpins coming from Bormio. There are more below but they must have got bored with numbering!
The Umbrail Pass. Well, it would be rude not to visit the Swiss border & another pass as was only a 200m detour!
Am glad it snowed last couple of days, because we were here 3 days ago & this place doesn't look good in the nude!
Second (just) highest paved pass in the Alps! See the name under all those stickers? View down the other side is OK!
Ever used a snow drift as a bike rack? Finally got some blue skies but can assure you this ride was rather chilly!
OMG... just been handed this map! But only booked 4 nights here... & storms are forecast Hoping for some luck!
Offenpass & Fluelapass. Love it but can't stay in Switzerland too long: so expensive! Lucky the memories are free!
Another ride into Lindau today, this time with Pratiwi. Very nice cycling through the orchards and vineyards.
Might have done a bit of pavé while sightseeing in Lindau this morning. Nice view from nearby Eichenberg too
After some very active days this morning's ride to Grosse Scheidegg was a struggle. Lucky there were views to enjoy!
Just got back from cycling round Lake Brienz. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it!
From today's ride: End of the road above Verbier. Or rather where it becomes gravel a short way below Croix de Coeur.
This morning's ride: random route from where we are staying in the Alps. Nothing famous but so beautiful. Love it!
