You have to start somewhere
Alrighty. So here is the first official posting for my new blog, Winnipeg CycleChick. Apparently I am not the only CycleChick out there, hence the need to include my location. Starting a cycling blog in January in Winnipeg is a bit like starting a diet right before Christmas. Kind of pointless. Not much to write about other than torturous indoor training in the basement staring at the teleposts that keep my house from falling on me and putting me out of my misery. Lance is in fucking Kona and I’m looking at a telepost. But Lance has beaten cancer and won the Tour de France seven times. Oh and came in a pathetic second once too. I have not had cancer, but I’ve had some pretty bad sunburns. I haven’t won the Tour, but did watch most of it last year on TV. Here is a look at my glamourous and state-of-the-art training facility.
8 weeks ’til Tucson and counting.
Read your article about how you dress during winter riding and wonder how many km you do/day?
I live in Sweden and the winter’s here can also be pretty harsh. This winter will be my first to commute. I ride 44 km/day to work. During the warmer period I commute with my old aluminum race bike equipped with Campagnolo Veloce and this winter i will ride my MTB, GT Zaskar with Shimano XT.
I also have a Ridley Helium 2013 with Campagnolo Chorus 11 for racing.
Thank for the tips.
Hi Alf. Sorry for the late reply. 44km is a decent ride. Home to work is about 8km for me, so all together about 32km. I just got a new commuter bike, and have also been dialling in my gear. I’ll be posing all about it in the coming weeks. Thanks for the note!
