Once again, it has been a while since my last blog entry here. There are several reasons for that, the most obvious being that I get just as bored writing them as you get reading them.
Also, after my carefully planned seasons went to hell in 2012 and 2013, I drastically cut back on registering for and participating in Gran Fondos. Which means there’s less to report.
We did spent a weekend in the Eifel and had a short trip to the south of the Netherlands – on both occasions I enjoyed my rides so much more than the rides through the flats around my hometown.
One of those ended badly again, but this time not because of poorly maintained bicycle lanes. I set out to complete a Strava Challenge (Gran Fondo 8), on the day we – the Sufferfest community – learned we had lost one of our own, due to a tragic accident.
