    Ah, you're lucky. You've happened upon a flock of grazing muppets.

    Agreed. It creeps me out even more to imagine you pedaling past these large creatures in the dark of night... (shudders)

    Came across this popular local teahouse "Rhijnauwen" on my daily ride. Really nice end to a ride going through the gate.

    Some sort of celebration!
    Exactly 1 year ago I started cycling with 3 kms a day. Makes this 73km beautiful night ride a worthy event :)

    Definately something to be proud of! Congrats Velo. Love seeing these night shots. Is it a commute or are you just riding at night?

    That's awesome. I don't mind riding at night but it's something i do out of necessity rather than choice. Kudos for that.

    Not much from me this week, but managed to get a couple of POV snaps from some testing i did with the chest mount. Really loving the footage you get with one of these. Great low cost accessory to have for your action cam :)

    Riding has to take a a back seat for the next couple of weeks as we enjoy the xmas festivities. Let's see how much weight i can gain between now and new year! :p

    Yeah, riding at night is a different world, it's magic.

    Great POVs there! That's so nice about Cycling Department, you can get some impression of other riders experience.

    Good Luck with the annual calories challenge :yum
    Hey maybe that would be something for STRAVA - "The Holiday Weight Gain Challenges" and "The New Year Weight Loss Achievement Series" haha :p

    LMAO that would be hilarious.

    @Bram
    How about special badge for consuming 1,000,000 calories during December? That's a training plan i could really get into! :heart_eyes:

    Hahaha me too. As a former heavy weight I rock those calories if needed.

    I try to do some cycling during the holiday season. Still need 112km for my 8 month goal to reach 7000km.

    Not bad for a n00b

    I haven't ridden in weeks. You guys are lighting a fire under my butt. Well, the problem is, I've been lighting a fire in the fireplace instead of riding on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Making coffee, baking a pie, reading, playing a little video game. I feel like a slug. I just need to go back thru this thread, look at some nice ride pics. And then get my lazy ass into some thermal tights and toughen up. I know I'll feel better afterwards. After a cold ride, that fireplace will feel warmer and the pie will taste better. :)

    Love that first one. It's one of those shots that has your mind making up stories about the scene. It's like something out of a movie or computer game :)

    BTW. I hate freezing fog. Nothing worse than being wet and frozen. Brrrrrrrr!

    Yeah that ship was spectacular.

    The worst thing in these conditions is to stop to get the camera out, my fingers were numb in secondso_O
