About Tazz_29

Cycliste amateur passionné par toutes les disciplines.
J'ai commencé par la route assez jeune avant de rouler sur la terre avec les débuts de la randonnée VTT, puis le XC IDF UFOLEP dans les années 1995-2000. Ensuite mon vélo a commencé à s'orienter FreeRide puis DH pour redescendre Enduro, Trail.
Et devinez quoi, à ce jour je fais du XC rando, et de la Route, enfin quand elle existe encore sous mes roues, d'où mon appellation AllRoad sur mes parcours (pour ne pas utiliser le terme Gravel, que je ne trouve pas représentatif de ma façon de rouler).
On peut dire que la boucle est bouclée. 😊

      Hi backpackers, it's been a while since I've been in the forest of St Germain. It has changed, or it's me who has changed (in practice). It is very clean this forest! If I had known, it's perfect for winter riding. I understand better why the Bobos roll in Gravel, very accessible this forest. Moreover, it is a course that can be done with any type of bike, especially if the ground is a little dry. For the bottom of the loop I did a bit on purpose not to take the best bike lanes, I wanted to see if it was still just as impractical along the N13, it's confirmed, I advise you to cross by changing banks at St Germain or at worst at Bougival. Otherwise, fortunately the sun finally appeared to raise the temperature from -1° to 7°C, otherwise I think I would have lost my toes.

      Hi backpackers
      Do not think that after 35 years of mountain biking my passion is waning.
      Just seeing this racing bike go to the workshop built by my friend Daniel Hanart in 1986, the owner wanting to get rid of it, well I bought it, and then why not ride it, eh ?.
      This morning I reunited with Sam, who had just finished riding his new bike.
      A lot of wheels have turned since the Technicycle was created, but apparently this one is not that obsolete, well almost….
      Since my first ride, I changed the crankset, I put on a MTB FRM with 172.5 mm cranks, with two 46/38 chainrings, just to feel better on the side.
      In static, the trays went well, in practice, less….
      Small adjustment at Sam's, it's good, in theory it will take more stops to get down the small chainring, without kicking in the derailleur ...
      I really liked Sam's look when I saw myself arrive on a road bike, backpack and flat pedals, never seen in 25 years of friendship !!!.
      He has a nice bike, the guy, and a nice setup, indeed, the transmission is better suited to non-competitors like me, leaving a crack open to new horizons with odds without suffering !!.
      What bothers me a bit is that everything is carbon, I must be old… .., but if I want to have a lesser impact on our planet, it will not go through this material, certainly great, but too harmful and not recyclable.
      It's gone ... on the asphalt, fortunately, more and more cycle paths exist, sometimes to do well at the time of the elections, because not adapted, without consultation with the practitioners, that is seen as soon as one rolls on them, ah these technocrats !!.
      Here, I have some play somewhere ... um, left crank loosening.
      Thank you Tom Ritchey for incorporating a 14mm 😁 footprint into your multi tool.
      The time for a vigorous tightening, a photo, we set off again, leaving the paths we know in our minds….
      My 23 and 28 spoke tires don't necessarily help matters, but that doesn't prevent us from driving on the new portion of the towpath, between Épluche and Pontoise, even seeing me cut into the earth, forgetting the gravel, Sam thought I was going to die 10 times !!!.
      Not even, on the side of L’isle Adam, I feel a game again…., This time it's the Mavic bottom bracket !!.
      Tightening with my Opinel as a hook wrench, well that will hold… ..not long, on the return.
      Maybe Sam is now thinking of writing me a check to buy me a new bike… ..
      Rather, I'm looking for an open garage for one of the thousands of ugly pavilions lined up along the Oise.
      I see a lovely woman getting her mountain bike out of one of these.
      Smile, explanations, and here we are with hammer, power strip, needle to screw this case tight.
      It is sometimes nice to humanity, even as cyclists pass by say hello to us, what a morning !!.
      Arrived at Beaumont, I show Sam a bakery that makes the best flan in France, but seeing the queue in front of the shop, the tasting will be postponed, so I make a good odds as a dancer, and… .crack boom hue, I break my almost new chain, 2000 mountain bike terminals !!!.
      Well, I won't put my new gloves back on, I forgot my hand cleaner, and will end up without any protection.
      A young cyclist took advantage of the forced break to do this adjustment of skates, asking us even if we had new ones to sell .... how to say, my backpack is full, but I don't have a store of spare parts inside !!!.
      Come on, we're off again, well it's not over, the box is redesigned, and well the 30 remaining terminals will be like this, the average will take a hit, with the head wind, I show less, forget the 40 km / h !!!…., and this is where I admit my limits with the road bike at the level of pleasure.
      Oh, of course, I'm going to insist a little, make myself a 200, history of, but frankly between the position, the lack of piloting, the presence of cars, the bitumen, me who has eaten so much in 44 tons, the My legs hurt, I can't see myself 14 hours in the saddle, although I am happy on the trails after so many hours of pedaling.
      Maybe I will lead both at the same time, or not, performance has never been my credo, why travel on the road to be well on the way, life is short, especially towards the end ... 😁.
      These are only sofa reflections where I write these words, a quick analysis of my first kilometers on a racing bike, I will go to the workshop in 700x23, depriving myself of jumps of stairs, of ramps of bridges, in short, the bullshit I like to do with my mountain bike, we'll see.
      I hope not to have been too long, and I wish you lots of beautiful hikes, whether on foot, road bike, gravel, mountain bike, to meet happy humans, living in harmony with nature, and like the Said Greta so well, everything else is… blah !!!.
      See you soon.

      Hi backpackers,
      It was a beautiful epic outing, Michel broke us down several times. A loose crank, a bottom bracket that loosens twice, and finally a new chain open in 2, too much power my Michel 🤣
      A beautiful before / after photo with 40 years between them.

      First outing of the year and first spin since the disappearance of my faithful steed. It was long overdue, but it was worth it 🤩 See you tomorrow for a new adventure ...

      Interesting routes, a lot of big roads (so as not to spoil my new set-up too much), 2 half-turns for the same reasons, I really didn't want to wash the bike when I got home. Otherwise, beautiful fall colors, and a little too many people on the end.

      Hi Sam
      Next time, you tell me, I'm coming to pick you up, and I'll show you a way back to the Republic that is much nicer than this one….
      Maybe 1 or 2 km more, max, but less polluted and cooler.

      Hi to you riders, well, I gave it my all. I spent the day hunting potatoes between 2 groups. But hey, it was fun and motivating when you want to push your limits a little. Otherwise, the route was a little too urban for my taste, but the passage over Fontainebleau is super fun, with beautiful forest roads closed to traffic.
