Two more perfect cross country skiing sessions. The first with perfect weather and the second with perfect snow. A road ride squeezed in the middle.
Above: Perfect weather for cross country skiing, and not too bad for road cycling… How odd…
Above left: I got older too and received a cake for my efforts. Yay, thank you cake-maker. Above right: We set off for a quick zap around the Schauinsland track. It was just under zero and the snow conditions were perfect. Nice and quick.

The first ski tour of the season. Jakob, Leonie, Walraud, and I headed up to Stollenbach Hütte and did a ski tour up onto Feldberg. The weather was a bit marginal and freezing at the top but still it was good to get out and remind myself how rubbish I am at skiing.

Perhaps the last ride of the year. I went for a little jaunt up around Schoenberg on my mountain bike in the snow.

Die Saison hat begonnen…
A beautiful day in Freiburg. The nasty misty grey had gone. Snow had fallen in the hills and Jakob, Nadine, and I headed up to the Schauinsland cross country skiing trail and tried out our langlaufen legs. The snow wasn’t too bad for the first day of the season and Jakob and I puffed our way around on skates while Nadine cruised around behind us on classics.
