“I LOVE THE COUNTRY ROADS”
Anna Nordgren works as a seller in our store in Vasteras. She loves to bike and run.
BIKES AND RUNNING, WHICH IS MORE FUN?
-Wow, hard to choose. I love both equally. I started cycling more when I got many injuries of the run. Cycling and running is a perfect combination with the variety of muscles and bones.
WHERE ARE YOU?
-I bike mountain bike in the forest and racing on the highway. Springer I do on asphalt and in the woods. The forest becomes biking and running more technical, feet and muscles have to work in a different way. Since I love the country roads. The views on a summer evening and the speed you can get up with good wind. Then it’s just me and the bike. See Abbreviationfinder for USA meanings.
WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS LIKE IN VASTERAS?
-It is absolutely wonderful to stay in town and be able to ride for ten minutes and be on the land. One of my best memories are from the days when I commuted between Vasteras and Stockholm. One day I had ridden the ten mile upwind and sat down at the hot dog stand in Hornstull, took a sausage and Festi and talked with a kiosk owner. I was exhausted but also so pleased with the cycle.
HOW DO YOU USE THE EQUIPMENT?
-When running, I often have a lighter vest or windbreaker, hydration pack, shorts, loose linen and gladly support stockings or compression stockings in wool. It is also schyst to have with a long sleeve warm sweater. On the mountain, I have with me a backpack with Clif bar (see below) and a reinforcement garment, sometimes burner and dried food. On the road, I just t-shirts, shorts and a water bottle.
