New bikes

Our last tours in Japan and South-Korea were rather mountainous ones. The Japanese coast line is up and down all the time, and so is South-Korea, except for most of the river-cycling-routes. At a certain point we were more or less surprised when, without being well prepared, we found ourselves cycling past the alpine center of the Pyeongchang Olympic winter games. Hardly a place to expect cycling travelers, to be honest. 

Evaluating these rides we came to the conclusion that we find this a bit too hard. We then decided that we would change to e-bikes. We suppose it to be a taboo, but considering our experiences and our ages we did not hesitate too long. Also we decided to stay in Europe from now on, no more long flights to other parts of the world. 
So our next blog will be electrified ones. (though I still ride my  Cannondale mountainbike, even in the Alps!)

I kept my Santos Travelmaster and had it equipped with Pendix eDrive.

Eveline sold her good old Santos and bought herself a brand new Riese&Müller Nevo Nuvinci.
