Went out for a winter ride today with Susanne. Was one of the coldest days this winter, 0° C.
We even got into a little bit of snow.
As we climbed higher the snow apeared.
My new Singular Gryphon, from sponsor Singlespeed.nl.
Looking forward to some more miles in the dirt with this rig. The Geax Saguaro tires are great, even in the snow.
Just thought I would share a few photos of my winter rides so far. I kicked off the off-season with 2 weeks in greece over xmas where it was colder than in Germany, but sunny. I managed to get in a handful of rides in the hills on the 3-speed steel Hercules. I forgot my pedals so i just rode with flat work boots. I love riding in Greece.
The rides in Greece set me up to feel good start of January and I have been in Berlin finding new off road routes with my GPS and http://www.velomap.org/de/download/ base data. The weather is grey and its sometimes hard to tell which way is north but the gps opened up the new routes imported on the google map below. Just trying to put in as much as I can and looking forward to the CremaCycles shorttrack in Berlin!
On a clear but cold winter afternoon I rode my new Singular Gryphon home from work. Temps were in the low 30′s, no wind. Perfect.
Got in three hours and 40 miles, not too bad for an after work ride in the dead of winter.
