12 minute warm weather riding reminder

Post by Mikael » Tue Feb 05, 2019 9:37 pm

Hi all,
This cold is dampening my enthusiasm at 5:30 in the morning. Judging by my Strava feed I am not alone in feeling this way. The video below reminds me of riding in shorts and short sleeves. Maybe it will warm you up a bit.
It was made by Sylvain St-Denis and shows two days of riding in Argentina and Chile. It features Christ the Redeemer, Sylvain and a lesser known TSC member.

Very cool looking trip, Mikael! I will admit, trudging on foot up a steep and sandy road is not too enticing, but I trust you were redeemed at the summit and I sure do envy the opportunity to pedal bikes in a beautiful, sunny foreign land. I'd love to hear more over coffee one day.

Very cool trip Mikael. I bet that beer in Santiago tasted good.

I noted the soundtrack included “Going to be Wounderful (sic)”. Glad that didn’t come true. ;)

So cool to see a TS jersey and a familiar face halfway around the world. Beautiful terrain and great company to share the adventure with. Thanks for posting.

If you'd like to see more images from Mikael's incredible trip, there is a dedicated gallery on the TS Photos site at this link. [Password: "coffee"]

Given Mikael's notable humility, I should point out that I created this gallery by stealing Mikael's photos off Strava and then subsequently obtaining his permission to share. :twisted: (I'm hoping you add some more, Mikael. When you aren't changing nappies etc.)

[This gallery isn't the first to present a member's cycling-related travels. Last year we enjoyed Andrew's trip to the UCI World's Masters in Varese, Italy. If you go on a bike trip and have some pics to share, please get in touch (Wallaces? Tenerife?) As Kenji said above: it's very cool to see the TS jersey reprezenting abroad!]

I missed this when it was originally posted, and just sat and watched it twice. What. A. Trip. Absolutely stunning views. And that climb! Mikael, I would love to go just for the views.
