Overview 2016 May

Banner May 16 - Veloviewer & London Revolution

The month of May was a busy month with as main goal the London Revolution (300 km in two days) exactly in the middle of the month. Preparing for that event and some nice long rides afterwards resulted in a total of 910 km, the second most I “ever” did, only preceded by previous month. Certainly not a topper in altimeters though.

An quick overview:

  • 06/05 : 91 km ride to the famous Kemmelberg in the Vlaamse Ardennen starting from the city of Menen. No blog post yet, in the picture gallery a few images of me climbing the steepest side of the Kemmelberg in my “Cancellara ;-)” livery.
  • 14/05: First day (100 mile) of the Dulux London Revolution, a very nice event cycling through and around London in two days.
  • 15/05: Second day (85 mile) of the Dulux London Revolution.
  • 27/05: After some rest and some local rides, I joined my wife who attended a conference in Amsterdam. And I made over there a very nice and varied ride: city, polders, dunes, coast, river side, …

Also this month I acquired my Go Pro Hero 4 Session; experimented a lot with it. I love to combine cycling with taking some pictures, make a nice selection and post them on Facebook and/or in this blog. Now I’m not limited anymore to pictures made with my smartphone (which is sometimes a bit cumbersome on a bicycle). My top images of this month (mix of smartphone and Go Pro below.

The overview image at the top (larger version as last image in the gallery) was made with Veloviewer (based on Strava data). More about this in a later post.
