Testing 1-2-3

  A week before our big adventure begins. Just finished a heat-abbreviated morning walk with Bruno, now back home to prepare for our training ride du jour. 

It was kind of warm for our ride. We rode for five hours and a bit at a relatively easy pace, but the last hour was a little less fun as fatigue and a slow leak in Jouko’s rear tire played tricks on us.   

 A good recovery requires sufficient carbohydrates, fats and protein. This is Jouko’s secret recovery combination.  

   Sooooo….not only did Jouko have a nail in his rear tire, he had also broken a spoke at some point on this ride.  Never a dull moment!
