“Snow or no snow, we ride” by Michaël Vandendriessche


During the cold weather of last week, most of us were forced to train indoors.  That can be fun for a while, but a true cyclist goes out whenever he or she can!

An opportunity presented itself last weekend when Frank Deboosere forecasted sunny days with only slightly below zero temperatures.
My training goal was to cycle 2 to 3 hours on both days. And my second, more important, goal was not to hit the ground face-first on an icy patch.

Turns out those thin racing tires can manage quite well on snowy and icy surfaces!.

“In this rather special weather, pictures say more than words,
so I’ll let you enjoy with me:”

 

 

I now understand the privilege of professional riders who enjoy the sun in the south of Spain or the Canary Islands in wintertime. ?

 

Greetings,

Michaël Vandendriessche.
