Cool Evening Protection

After recently having gotten my Mango back into riding condition and the snow having melted in our neck of the woods, I am back enjoying the velo so much!

Saturday my Pal Wouter B. and I went for our first ride of the year to a little community center about 13 km from my home in Calmar. I was in my Velo, he on our new ICE Sprint 26 shop Demo. A great afternoon of riding ! Total for the day –35 km, YES!

I found that the spring air was chill when riding over 25kph so I decided, after remembering several posts from Euro Velo riders, to make a larger visor. So After Easter Church services I designed and made a larger visor and then had the opportunity to test it out later that afternoon. My youngest Son Brian, also tried it out during a few loops around the block. Verdict: No breeze on my face, felt luxurious in the velo with the sun shining!!
