Finished 12th out of +350 riders, so Im very happy about that. But I won the fastest time on Rebild Bakken which netted me glasses, a cycling shirt and a ticket for next year's event which was kinda unexpected. With one second!

We average 40 km/h, so Im pretty gassed atm...

Congrats. What is it like being a KoM in Denmark?

What its like? Don't know, its not like I smashed people on an Alpine climb, just went pretty fast on a 1 km climb, sitting in wheels for a good chunk of it. So Im not really feeling special and I didnt think about the competition when I rode for some reason (I had good chances since Im very much of a puncheur and in good shape atm), but it was very profitable in the end. :D

Here's the ride

I also needed some podium girls to pinch. Won the Mavic jersey Im wearing

Trying a little experiment, was out on 75 km two days ago and 80 yesterday and now onto a 110 km group ride. Mainly because the weather has been great lately and I needed some cycling tan. :D Anyways, lets see how it goes today, I fear I just don't have anything left.

Okay now I’ll admit I didn’t watch the whole thing, but I did check it out. :)
Nice graphics on the screen...that made me watch it longer. Nice climb and scenery.

Do you consider the tan a badge of honor!?

Aye it is a bit long, still not the best at editing videos but I’ll get there, I'm more going to use it for some of my more local climbs that are crazy steep and will be hopefully look good for the GoPro

Okay that’s what I forgot to ask, but you answered. You have a GoPro. The image stabilization was great.

The obligatory long Sunday ride, this time a rather flat route around Limfjorden (Aalborg - Gjøl - Løgstør - Nibe - Aalborg). Pretty windy, but nice and relatively warm weather. Well, at least the sun was out. The ride was 112 km long at 35 km/h, so a nice a fast ride with a nice group.

What type of bike and wheels were you using?

A mountainbike. No clue about the wheels, pretty heavy and bad, just the default wheels on a pretty cheap Specialized. :D Mainly just using my MTB to train in the winter.

We (husband and I) did the annual Bike the Banks ride today. (Emerald Isle, North Carolina). There are 3 options 100 miles, 50 miles, or the fun 10 miles (or as far as you want to ride). We do the 10 mile one that is more like 15 to 20 miles as we always go father. I'm working on longer distances, but right now that's about the limit of what I can ride at a time. 2 years ago when we first rode it, 10 miles was the limit of what I could ride.

Haha, nah. I wish I had a cross tho. Im a die hard roadie (only thing I care about is men's road cycling, couldn't care less about the other disciplines honestly) but I must say I got completely hooked today. The ooportunities to construct off-road routes on a MTB is pretty insane around here, I think we only did 20% on asphalt today, max.

Nice, at one point you would probably be able to do around 50-70 km and maybe more. Cycling is the best form for exercise, no doubt!

Did 80 today in the sun in a relatively slow group ride, still hurt like hell on the inclines after yesterdays effort.
