Not going to say much, but I got a Brooks saddle, it’s a long time coming, I’we been wanting one for years, and with the tour coming up I felt it was time, choice fell on a Flyer (the Special one with the hand hammered copper rivets) in the honey color, I also (of course) “needed” to get the handlebar tape to match!
Everything was bought in the awesome store that is Gamla Stans Cykel!
Aint she pretty in her new gear (ignore the saddle angle, it’s fixed, I was a bit quick to get it out for a ride!)
Glamour shoots of the saddle and the bar tape, enjoying the morning sun!
And the verdict, after a mere two days, it’s one glorious piece of work, I love it, from the first moment I sat in it, even with the wrong angle it was like a revolution of comfort for my behind, I’m looking forward to the future of it, how will it be when the the summer tour starts? in 6 months? next year?
More to come, but not today!
Right, this has taken a wee bit longer then it was supposed to.
Mom visited sometime (well august 2014) and well, joined for a ride around Järva, with the kids (all three) in wagons or by bike, so here comes pictures and maps:
Siiri, with Saga in the wagon sleeping, going to see the petting zoo at bög gård
Siiri with Grandmah and Siiri with Granddad (I mean the goat).
Saga actually woke up to see some animals to!
After Bögs gård we started biking towards the old mill.
Mom on the borrows bike and on the second picture one can see Viljami.
Boiled sausages in bread at the mill, I got to use my trangia kitchen again!
Saga doing what she does best, eat, first at the mill, then a little later at Säbygård.
From here we went to some play spot before home called.
Incase you are curious about the route, it’s about like this:
