Paris-Roubaix 2015

About a month ago I partook in the Paris-Roubaix Challenge 2015. I biked with my father, the shorter distance of just 70 km, while my brother rode the longest, which is about 140 km. This was my first time riding this long, and my first proper time on a road bike. So I was quite exited!

If you haven’t heard about Paris-Roubaix before, you may think it’s just a normal road bike race, but it’s not. The pro’s ride around 240 km, where 50 km of the road is on old cobble road. Below you can see how it was to ride on one of the sections with cobble stone. Not good for you arms, bike, or butt.

 

From France with …

As mention in the previous post, I’ve been away on vacation. More exactly I’ve been in Paris and Perpignan which is in France. My girlfriend and I arrived in Paris last Friday and stayed there for one night before we headed down to Perpignan. In Perpignan my parents had rented a house my hole family was staying in. So most of the week went to relaxing in the pool that belonged to the house. It was great, didn’t do much, read a book, played some Cave Story and ate a lot of good food! We also went to the beach, so I of course got a sunburn. A typical vacation, and renting a house was perfect. So much space just to relax in the sun is great. Hopefully doing that again. I’ll upload some images from the trip tomorrow. Today I present you with what I bought after a trip to Artoyz in Paris. I used a bit more Euro then planned, but I’m pleased with what I ended up with.
