Yesterdays post in English

Monday morning

starts just as planned

Crossfit workout for 20 minutes


hang up 2

A walk with the dogs

a quick shower

Leaving home with my breakfast in my backpack

I´ll eat when i get to work

In the garage my love awaits ❤

We have had a long lasting love affair and I´m still in love ❤



Off to work…

same route as always

same challenges with traffic and lots of cars

Drive defensively

but at the same time get there

Pass the traffic jams

but make sure to be seen

In total controll


I get hit by a car that throws me over to the lane next to us…

….there I hit another car, before I land on the ground

I hit the other car with my knee, so no wonder it hurts some afterwards…


It wasn’t´t high speed…

I didnt hurt my selv much in the impacts

…..but lying there on the ground I wait for the next car coming at high speed….

At this intersection they drive really fast..

What is coming next?

A big truck?

or a smaller car?

Its dark….

Will they see me?

Manage to stop in time…?

Will I end up int the ER, met by my own colleagues?

Or an even worse alternative?

Its amazing how many thoughts can run trough you head in just a blink of an eye….

But no cars ran over me…they either managed to stop or changed lane…

I dont know

Someone helps me up

I am able to drive the bike out of the intersection, but of course it is damaged…


We write an injury report

Both drivers from the two cars are really nice…

worried about how I am doing…

I am just thinking about the truck that never came…

A nasty experience…

but Im not going to stop driving my bike because of it…

I cant quit something I love!

Something that makes me happy…


mc 1

If I weren’t  to do anything dangerous in this life, I would have to park my car immediately..

But I do drive carefully – defensively – making sure to always be seen…

Maybe a bit more after yesterdays experience..?

Am I hurt?

Vel…. a bit beaten, some pain in my neck and knee..


But mostly I hurt in my bike…. 🙂

My great love…<3

sykkel vm bergen

Todays post in English

I have neeeeeever cared about Tour de France….

Vuelta Espania…

or any other bike race for that matter…

Actually I hate cycling myself

Its exhausting…

its boring…

and it hurts like he…….. some where unmentionable

But the world championship is in Bergen this week

sykkel VM

And that’s big I have been told….

a once in a lifetime happening

And I know to appreciate rarities 🙂

So instead of complaining over closed streets

Busses that doesn’t go where they are supposed to

Or other restrictions this week

I choose to see the positive

I see Bergen showing off from its best side…

sunny and beautiful!!

Happy people cheering for every athlete – no matter which country

I see the streets filled with policemen…

….and everyone who knows me – know that I LIKE a police in uniform…



And there is a lot of  party going on in the city…

Our traditionally Tuesday mountain hike – ended up in the city last night

some wine

and a late summer night feeling is just what we appreciate..


As said before the roads are closed

and it isn’t easy to get to work ( or home)

there is a Shutlebus going trough the city

and you are as herring in a barrel inside the bus…

Not my thing!!!

We just have to join the circus

So this week I decided to cycle to work –

together with my dear friend and co-worker Benedikte

I drive to her house and then we cycle together at 06.30meg og bendis

I’ve borrowed a bike from a friend in the choir ( thanks Lovinda <3)

But Lovinda is a bit shorter than me, so my first trip I had my knees up to my chin..

Lucky me, I have a bit more experienced co-workers and she showed me how to adjust the seat

When it comes to gearing I am hopeless….so in the steep hills I had to stand up – and down hills my legs worked like drumsticks…

BUT that was my first trip!!!!

Now I do better!!! But thats after  the chain  had jumped off several times due to some crazy gearing…



Monday morning I started a new job at the ;


And I am embarrassed to admit that I have been cycling to work for 2 days without a helmet…

Couldn’t find mine…

It would be just great arriving at the hospital as a multi-trauma patient with a head injury due to not using a helmet.. my first day at work at the TRAUMA CENTER!!!!

That wouldn’t be embarrassing at all……. 😦

BUT I found it today!!

So finally I look like a sensible cycler…


I am not very experienced though

I’m not sure I can let go of the steering wheel long enough to scratch my nose….

I think I remember letting go of the steering wheel with both hands as a child….on the other hand that might have been my brother…

NO…I think I`ll stop to scratch my nose… just to be safe…

When I got passed by an older man in boots and grey hair, I realized that the world cup was far away…

BUT I do cycle

I don’t complain about closed roads

And I do appreciate the world championship and the folk festival!!!!

But my ass still hurts…

A wish you all a wonderful week

with or without a sore ass!!!
