I decided to ride to the Wilderness of Marttila via a new route, mainly on small roads. It proved to be a fantastic choice!
The new, stronger Salsa Anything Cage and Porcelain Rocket Anything pack, with 1 l Thermos bottle inside:
Revelate Designs Expedition Pogies are truly outstanding:
I encountered some very nice snow showers too:
At the beginning of a very nice forest road:
Only one car had driven there...
...but later it got even better!
The beauty of winter is everywhere:
Getting closer to the Wilderness of Marttila:
On the trail to the Karhunperänrahka mire. The new 9:ZERO:7 with Clownshoe rims and Bud/Lou tires were phenomenal!
Karhunperänrahka mire. Blissfulness!
The mire was however really bumpy, but I did ride on it for awhile. I was running out of time so it was time to head home.
The new 45NRTH Bergraven gaiters worked great the whole day:
At home after 8 hours. Supercooled rain in the last hour freezed on me nicely. :)
This was an excellent training ride with pretty high intensity. I'm feeling ready for the Rovaniemi 150.
