Music you might have missed, some of the great music I got into the last year or so.
I got to try out a 4iiii Precision powermeter for month on my roadbike and wrote this review.

My experience in becoming a better cyclist with these comprehensive yoga exercises. Strengthen your core and easing tension throughout your body.
We grow up with story telling, something that stops along the way. The modern equivalent, the humble audiobook or rather more so the episodic podcast.
Sometimes you start things which you don't really think through. And that's probably for the best, because if you knew how much pain and effort it takes before you actually
Last september I had my first introduction with cycling in the French Alps. As the majority of the cols I've climbed are in the Mont Ventoux region, having spend two
I've actually written a blog about passwords plenty of times before, from how they aren't enough and how to master all of them easily with a password manager. But when I get inspired to write a blog I go with it and I just
An introduction to fixed gear Ever since I saw Lucas Brunelle's Line of Sight documentary two years ago I've been quite fascinated by fixed gear bikes. Although I imagine that
Back in May I finally got to climb proper sized mountains in southern-eastern region of Provence in France. Something that I had been looking forward to ever since a cycle
Hella - Vik So after the Laugevegur hike came our roadtrip on Route 1, or mostly on that road (which is also called the Ring Road for obvious reasons) as
Canadian hikers It was somewhere in 2011 when I met Chrissy & Adam for the first time. Way back it seems and on the other side of the globe when
It's been a while I'm starting to detect a trend in my blogging. Somehow I tend to procrastinate my blogging but I have to admit I had a good reason. As you might have noticed my blog looks a bit different. Well that's because
I couldn't sit continuously any longer, the kilometres had taken their toll. The Fizik Arione R5 saddle I recently bought to replace the rather bad saddle that originally came with
31557600 seconds, 525960 minutes, 8766 hours, 365 days, 52 weeks or really just a year (yes these numbers are rounded off). Time is quite fascinating actually as it is relative.

As you might know I like experimenting a bit with new ideas and concepts. I've tried barefoot/minimalistic running and love it, it's the only way I run now. The same goes for not watching any regular television (although I do watch documentaries and
Our lives are quite digital these days and living without being plugged in is for some a big problem. You'll see tons of people checking their phone often while matching a movies (in the theatres), when on holiday, while crossing the road, bicycling or
I've made these type of posts before, although they were titled "Bands you might have missed" but this title probably suits these little posts better and I started numbering them. I'm in for the long haul ;). As you must know by now
Passwords, it's near impossible to have never used those jumble of characters these days. I've posted about the use and management of passwords before. But these days passwords just aren't enough. Especially when people tend to use very simple passwords and using them on
