Winter de-motivation

Snow, melt, more snow, slush, more melt, frost, more snow, rain, frost, more snow. In exactly that order. We don’t wanna go down as the biggest bike winers ever but with a weather like this… our bikes just refuse to be taken out! 10 cms of snow and a solid -5C is what we need – that would at least allow us to take a spin for an hour every now and then.

On the professional side – if we would have been real professionals we’d been in Spain or Down Under now – your composers of cycling poetry and other sentences both made a “team transfer”. Both of us are pretty busy impressing our new colleagues so yet another excuse for not sticking with the tagline of our blog.

So what do we do to keep in touch with the world of cycling? We continue to work on our build-a-bike projects, contemplate possible investments, watch guys bike&run world-class in the mud on Sundays and read reports of other bikers like this one: cycling legendary hills around Osaka, Japan.
