Weekend Group Ride

By Cycling Dad:

While Alex and I are still anxiously awaiting the birth of our daughter, I took the chance to go out on a Sunday group ride with my mates from RC Mödling and the notorious “Boschberg-Partie”, a slightly paced, loosely organised ride for amateurs from all over Vienna and Southern Lower Austria that draws members mainly through word of mouth. At this time of the year, the guys and gals still don’t go too fast – but there is already the spirit of competition in the air. Anybody can jump in and out of this group and ride as he or she likes. It’s a great chance to practice paced riding in a pack and a fun way of getting to know the local racing community. If you are interested to join, just leave a comment or send me an email and we’ll go together.

Also, I wanted to try out my latest gizmo – a GoPro Hero 3 action cam. I’ll write a review about it soon, and am really looking forward to using it along with the Team Alpecin activities throughout the summer. Here is what the result looks like. Already better than our first video, but there are still some lessons to be learned. What do you think?
