These are the mere necessities of travel

I tested the bicycle yesterday, riding 17 km, and it worked well, the new axle nut keeps tight. I also installed new pedals to the bicycle. The old ones got 15 000 km of riding, and the new ones are the same model. When I got the bicycle I had different pedals, but they only lasted 400 km, and the second set of pedals even less than that. Then I switched to Shimano lock pedals, and they are durable.

Today I walked for 2 1/2 hours in Nuuksio, northwest of lake Siikajärvi, exploring Soidinsuo swamp. That felt good. This week I have got only 4 1/2 hours of exercise so far, and that is little.

The photographs were taken in Oulu on July 24th.
