My Favorit month (Day 1 - 2)

Sunday, 1st July. I woke up at 10:00. Since my last city-shity bike has been stolen, I needed some bike for transportation in the city. Good offer in Linz didn't happen, so I took iPad and searched for some city bike in Slovakia that morning. Found one! But in Piešťany - 70 km away! The temperature outside was around 35°C at noon so I waited a little bit. During that time I just wrote the message on facebook - who would like to travel with me to Piešťany? I was so suprised when several people wanted to have a transport to or from Piešťany! I didn't travel alone at all. It was great trip. Actually I have earned some money.

At 6 pm I was at Tesco in Piešťany where the guy who was selling the bike came. He really knew a lot about bikes. He was a bike racer some years ago. I have bought old Czechoslovak Favorit bike from the 80's from him (59€). I liked that bike on the first sight. Was in good condiion, I took a test ride in the parking area and loaded in the car.

When I came to Vienna, I went immediately to Prater park to test the bike again. It was dark night, but I liked the feeling riding the bike and I was looking forward to ride to work next day.



Without any adjustments I took the bike and went to work on my Favorit bike. I tracked that track with iPhone. It took me 22:21 to get to work with this bike. It is almost half the time in comparison with trams. With my KTM MTB it took me almost 24 minutes. Favorit has 28'' wheels and the weather was perfect today.

Very comfortable position, seat and handlebar make very good impression when you ride it. It is designed for the city. It was just pleasure to ride along Donaukalanal in the morning.

At that time I have decided not to buy Wiener Linien Monatskarte for public transportation for July. I want use only bikes or car if necessary. So it means that I will take my bike to work and back every day.

In the evening I made just a little adjustments (fixed the screws, raised seatpost), but nothing essential. I am looking forward to ride it again in the morning!

Here is my track to work: http://gps.motionx.com/og/index.php?id=2c95de3e3798db2ddeb131adb488830d&fb_action_ids=10150982699509774&fb_action_types=motionx-gps%3Arecord&fb_source=timeline_og
