Raising funds for research to prevent and cure cancer
Last year was my first time participating in Alpe d'HuZes. It was impressive and felt as a privilige to be able to bike up the mountain to raise money for the fight against cancer.
Of course the fight continues and I am happy to be able to participate once more.
Inspired by and thankful for my brother's recovery, I am confident that some day we do not have to lose friends, family or anyone to this awful disease anymore. But seeing other friends and relatives struggle with this disease, I realize that it will require a lot of further research and funding. Just trying to contribute my little part to it.
In respect to those who are currently fighting off this disease and in respectful memory to all those who have, please join me in this fight and donate whatever you can to this all-embracing cause. Thank you.
128 Days until the challenge of 126 bends, climbing up the Alpe d'Huez.
So, about time to give the bike a good scrubbing (won't be the last of course) and to start thinking about optimizing the gearing a little (putting on a 12-36 cassette).Share
Time for some mudguards (removable)
126 days till 126 curves: no days to lose. So, although they are quite ugly, still installing mudguards. They are easily removable. Will allow me to ride in wet road conditions while not getting my butt, feet and rucksack too wet.
Did an hours HIIT indoor cycling workout in the meantime. Just to build that general endurance.Share
126 days to go: looked like a beatiful afternoon for riding.
Unfortunately I had to train indoors anyway. But it was a good training: 1 hour HIIT.Share
Icey bicycle paths today
Icey bicycle paths today: I just wasn't as brave as other cyclists. So the attached picture isn't mine.
Definitely not as brave as people fighting cancer. Giving-up/not going is not an option for them. Respect!
Just an indoor Sweet Spot interval training for me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTpajIMZKz8&t=115s
