Coming some more pics later… But I had such a sweet day today! Went for some pike-fishing with Sverre early this morning. Really nice! Then some biking before it got dark. I’m hooked on that. So fun when I got myself a good bike!
Been writing some this week, and didn’t blog. I guess it’s a good sign! Delivered some texts to Transition (new webpage!) and Åka Skidor. Two mags, and two different kind of writing styles. It’s interesting!
Spent the weekend in Bynn – sweet as always. Was staying with Bea at our cabin in Håberget. But my dad had put some new brick stones in the fireplace, so I couldn’t make any fires. Merde! But I had a sweet day of fishing at Blueberry Bay. So nice to be in the water again… That covered up for the fire-disappointment. Ha ha.
Then off to Lungsjöån, for a day there. Beautiful, but the fish were to tricky for me that day. It had been raining a lot. I blame that. I like that it’s not too easy though. Have to be some challenge!
Met up with my friend Jonas Bolling the other day. He’s the chef at Ski Lodge Engelberg. Went for a food safari in Stockholm, and tried a sweet sushi place (Akkis Sushi – really good! But not as good as Westermalms Sushi though), and a mad coffee place! I realized that I don’t know anything about coffee at all… But the guys at Johan & Nyström taught me some!
And, of course, some biking!
Well, of course I didn’t run 30 km. Yesterday I was just resting, and cheering for Bea, who did the classic “Lidingöloppet“. It’s a mega race in Sweden, with about 20 000 participants. Trail running in nice surroundings. The furthest Bea had run before, was about 15 km, so she was stoked to finish. Me too! I never had any doubts though (the fact that she’s a better runner than me could be one reason I’m only biking these days…).
Today I went tried some new trails with my new bike. Went to Fiskartorpet with Pape. It was good biking!
This may sound a bit dramatic, but it’s true. Yesterday I went biking with my friend Pape, who’s really fast on his bike. We just kept on biking and biking, and way too fast. After a couple of hours I started to hallucinate, and I begged that we would turn around and go back home. But my whispers were too weak…
Ok, maybe he didn’t try to murder me. But! I was so tired I almost started crying at one point. Guess it’s good for me though!
Today I’m gonna cook dinner with my food-mongo-friend Starving Mason, and it’s gonna be good! Before that, we’re gonna go out to Lidingö a cheer for our ladies, who are running the 30 km race “Lidingöloppet” today. I’m proud of Bea! (And I’m gonna try to see if me and Starving can make a bet about who’s got the fastest girlfriend. We’ll see…)
Went for a bike run yesterday. Again… So fun now. My new bike floats! My old one was just bouncing a lot, trying to penetrate me with the saddle (when those attempts were combined with slippery-pedal-issues, that bastard was sometimes successful).
Sweet weather today! I like the fall. Cause it’s close to winter…
I also saw the two trailers from my friends Matthias Mayr and Matthias Haunholder’s movie company. Take a look!
Tried my new bike for the first time today. Stoked! So much easier to ride than my old bike. I was biking with my friend Pape, who’s really fast, but I think I’m less behind now.
Oh, I was supposed to tell you why I got this bike, and not another one. Well, there’s a number of reasons, this Bike Radar review is of them. Pretty awesome…
My mother in law is here visiting. She’s sleeping next to the new bike. Guarding it… As you might read, my old bike got stolen. So this one is NOT leaving the apartment as long as I’m not sitting on it.
I’m in a rush, and will explain later why I’m MEGA stoked on my new Canyon Nerve XC 8.0. Now I need to buy a pair of new bike shoes before the store closes.
