Without any preparation and after having a crazy idea of riding my bike to my parents place (almost 300km), I found myself sweating my a$$ off in the hot roads from Helsinki to Koskenpää. Parts were easy and some parts, because of some bad choices, were awful. Really needed to use some of the things I've learned from yoga. Patience being one of them. In the hardest times I just kept repeating ideas like: the bike is moving, if I just continue and wait, I will eventually be in my destination... just wait. I was also repeating one part of the slogan of YOGAFUNC... Never quit!
I was right.. I didn't quit and I just waited.. and after waiting for 13 hours, I reached my destination. Way harder than the marathon I once ran in New York. That's quite obvious really. I ran the marathon for 3 and a half hours, riding my bike for 13 hours is something else. :)
Here is a short video from the road.
