Cycling is my favourite way of keeping fit. I´m type 1 diabetic and I bear also Bechterew's disease with me, so my back aches more less daily. I try to keep my legs on pedals and positive energy up and running so that I can stay as good shape as possible. 29er HT is my only tool at the moment for xc and road.
MTB in Muovaara with MTB Kuusamo.

Looked at your blog, your 'new' bike looks amazing!
Thanks! Its really good looking and felt comfy (like the older steel frames are). I think I will buy a 1990 Selle Italia Flite saddle (black of course) and try to paint the seatpost black too ;)
Hienoa maisemaa ja reittiä.

Mountain biking 2:48'17.2 Average heart rate 167 bpm, 60.00 km.Tähtisadeajot 2014. Fast and really hilly route (gravel roads and forest trails) near Jyväskylä (Saarenmaa). Weather was perfect, and I was really happy to race after Syöte MTB in early august. First 30km went pretty ok, last 30km felt suffering :) Had to travel back to Kuusamo straight after the race, so it meant sitting in a car some 600km. Arrived to home 11pm, slept only 5h before the work...
Mountain biking 4:29'50.9 Average heart rate 165 bpm, 61.20 km.Syöte MTB 60km. This was the main goal for this mtb-season and it was quite successful ride. I took a slight risk four days before the event. I did quite hard (but short) xc-training. I knew it could be a mistake because my back could be an issue in saturdays event after hard training. I managed to excercise and stretch leg and gluteus muscles pretty good so I felt decent in the morning. After all, everything went well and I managed to push everything what I coud. The result was 14. in M40 class and total time was 14min faster than previous year. Happy!
Mountain biking 2:58'01.2 Average heart rate 169 bpm, 48.84 km.Rollo MTB 50km for MTB-enthusiasts, this was first time for this event and it was in the same week end with Finnish XCE/XCO/DH championships. Demanding route and very warm weather! Rocky up hills were difficult for me, but everything else tasted quite good and managed to push own good pace though. I was 13. in 50km start so it went pretty good o/

Mountain biking 2:55'23.2 Average heart rate 169 bpm, 64.00 km.Tähtisadeajot 2013. Oh my...legs were in fire but sadly my mountainbikes seat clamp didnt hold the seatpost in place and therefore I have to stop four times to adjust the saddle height :(
