Prologue: I was pretty with bike repair before Christmas. I will be on holiday for two weeks, so I deceided to make a training camp. The winterlike weather is not the best for trainings, but it could have been worse. And I had to burn down many cookies. Cycling is perfect for this. I am not in top form, my body needed a break day after 3 training days.

Location: Dunes of Zala

(Experience) Report: It was everything from summer like weather thourh rain to snow. Strava excerpts can give so some details about it.

Ugly, cold, absolutely bad cycling weather. Last time I gave loctite the bolts of my shoes. They aren’t moving now. However, unpleasant sounds are coming from the rear wheel. I think the lubricant has been washed out.

After a rest day I continued my training. The temperature was okey, but liquid sunshine was pouring down.

I had to wear shorts today. The sun worked hard today. On uphill sections I felt like a powerless steam locomotive . I don’t want to speak about the road quality. My hands were numb. I will habe a better round next day.

Tour at the Lake Balaton – Last year we made the bigger round around the Lake Balaton. We didn’t cycled these sections. 5 degree, wind, where is the weather from yesterday?

Today is a good day for testing the rain pants. My road bike went to the hospital, but I took my old mtb for a ride. Firstly it was muddy then it switched to rainy. After I left the artificial lake I enjoyed every minute of pedal boating.

The shit was frozen in my gut. -1 °C and 40+ kph aren’t recommanded together.


Conclusion/recommendation: If I spend more time at home, I try to make at least one tour in every direction. The road bike with mud guards was a good choice. I could not pedal much in muddy conditions with mtb. I was surprised how dirty my bike was in the end of the training.
