Well, its only Tuesday, but its been a dose of variety since getting back… Aside from trying to adjust back to the SEA time zone, I have been beavering away on iMovie and Vimeo (got my technique down and everything) to bring some more thrilling road riding video to life.
Now, remember – Its key to focus on the scenery and hopefully enjoy the tunes that accompany these cuts. I have tried to keep them as snappy as possible… Here is Video #1, from that EPIC day of intrepidness where I set out from Varese and smashed the comfort zone perimeter to pieces (AKA a normal ride for most people):
And yes, the second song in that video does have some relevance… Now is the time to be creating stories to tell. And, to follow up, here is 6 hours of riding condensed down into 5 minutes… That is about the limit I think:
Last few days have seen a nice road ride around here, with the exploring bug having bitten I have taken to riding down roads I have never ridden down before… With some good results:
Its too easy to get into robot training mode and bypass roads on the same routes you always ride out of sheer compliance to a regime, so good to mix it up. I am also drawn to sections with minimal traffic as it took about 5 mins riding back here to remind me that Italian drivers are really special, as opposed to the drivers here who are special needs.
This morning saw a welcome return to the MTB, a good session with Das Wolf in attendance on the new Bukit Timah MTB track (well, 1/4 of it is new, its a work in progress), which is a significant upgrade on the previous set up. I always love getting to the halfway point on the BT loop:
The Wolf, trying to fit into sheeps clothing again:
Just a quick update today as I need to get my shit sorted in the 2 days I have left before its back to Changi and off to Japan, stay tuned for the mission briefing…
