On the Friday before sub-24 Friday, I always look out of the window (obviously I am at home) and try to imagine the weather to expect in one week's time. Well, last Friday was dark, cold, windy, wet, and generally miserable.
Is that what we have to look forward to next week? There are some tough riders amongst us, I know. But who would rather go riding and camping instead of all the other nice options Finland offers us at this time of year - central heating, candles, glögi, warm embraces?
I'm also of the opinion that, despite being nice and protected in the Pirttimäki cabin, the damp firewood will make everything a bit more miserable.
So, to cut a long story short: Bemböle at 17:45. Then a couple of hours night ride to Nuuksio.
Or the candlelight and embraces thing.
(As an aside, I'm planning to go here before Christmas. If someone wants to join/instruct me, that would be nice...)
