November done

At least for us living in the dark North, November can be a cruelsome month. This time November took off by me being properly ill for the first week, which accumulated quite a bit of work for the coming weeks – thus no blogging for a while. Things didn’t get any easier as I sold my flat, and was preparing for a move. Summing it up, however, it wasn’t all that bad.

– I got the Garmin Vector power pedals. They’ve been mostly good. The low output numbers are frustrating, but [they keep me pedalling/give me incentive]. Who needs Sufferfest when one has power output and left/right balance on one’s computer, right?

-We paid a quick visit to the Costa Blanca region in Spain, which was amazing from a cycling point of view.

-Finally got past the 10k mark. That came with some 115.000 vertical meters.

-Managed to squeeze in 41 hours of training – a tie with January as the lowest training volume this year.

-The Oltre was delivered, and thanks to the lack of snow, I actually had a go on it before parking it for the winter.

Will get back to the Vector, and some other gear related topics once we get past the move.

    Looking forward to hearing how the Oltre is for you. If I can’t afford a Colnago (most likely the case) I think it could be your bike for me! Loving the Vector, too, by the way. Really keeps you ‘honest’.

    Thanks Gerry, based on the two quick rides it feels stiff, but in a positive way: after the C50 you’re surprised when standing up on an uphill you realize that instead of bending the frame, you’re actually throwing yourself uphill 🙂 The roads are frozen now, so will have to wait some time for more now..
