First MTB race

Did my first MTB race on Sunday. The Carl Ras MTB Challenge. I did the 25km route. It was super nice and I’m very happy with my time of 1:35. Definitely doing more mountain bike races from now on. It was super foggy and chilly in the morning but thankfully it let up as the race started and we got very beautiful and warm autumn weather. Unfortunately I dressed for the cold foggy weather so I was a sweaty mess at the goal line.

Today started out sunny and warm and is ending now with thunderstorms that, having not been on the weather report, I’m not prepared for at all. I went to work wearing shorts and t-shirt. Oh well, it’s fine, it’s only water after all. Work was good, we made good progress on the Thing I’m working on. Questions were answered and user-interfaces were built.

Took the long ride home from work today. It was super nice, had never cycled in that area before. Met some Icelandic horses too.

We took a walk today and passed upon Leftside. Leftside is this awesome part of Northside Festival where everything is free and people (though mostly the sponsors) bring beer, wine and snacks to share with everyone else. You also need to cross the river to enter.

Thanks for the past 5 and half or so years, Valtech. It’s been a pleasure.

Arrived at Billund for our flight to Stockholm. Gonna be a nice weekend to visit that city again.

Easter bike trip planning

Planning for our Easter bike trip across Jylland continues. We bought some saddle bags last week which arrived Friday and Saturday, and today a box arrived with tubes, co2 canisters and an inflator. The router is mostly locked down and we have found a shelter to camp in for the first night. We just need to find shelters for the remaining two nights of the trip, and from that find out our route. Thankfully there are a lot of shelters in Jylland so that shouldn’t be an issue.

I think this will end up looking pretty good.
