My weekly bike ride from Beirut to Jbeil

After a hard week of work, what’s better than enjoying the gorgeous panorama along the Lebanese coastline, on a sunny Sunday? As almost every Sunday, especially after I recovered from the knee injure and the week quadriceps, we went along with Otter and Arne for a road bike ride from Beirut to almost Jbeil and back, after few flat tires, of course. I’ll leave you with some of the pictures from the ride.
Here is my woman! "Tommaso" bike (Or Tomato, as Otter likes to call it)


This is me back to Beirut (I think I was near Zouk Mikael)



I think these 2 pics were taken in Jounieh

near the sea road, trying to catch up with Arne.

Near Halat, after a couple of flat tires!

(From left to right: Arne and his Raleigh bike, Me and my Tommaso bike

and Otter's "Seven" bike (Otter was taking the pictures,

Many thanks to him)

OMG Nobilis you didn't cave in to the DAILY SNIVELER DID YOU?!??! For shame... You know you always pass those drug tests with flying colors why mock your achievements?
He's probably obsessing because...I bet he didn't brush the part of his car where the bug hit it this morning. See with you on the bike they just slide around the slipstream with cars... it's explosive bug juice and carnage.

Krys,
Je me suis fais écrasé la fois précédente, en assayant d'éviter une voiture. Mais c'était pas si sérieux. Qques égratignures

otterinaround a dit…

yeah the silly woman was on the phone in her GIANT SUV. She just figured she'd slide the car over to avoid the speed bump.. but she nearly turned NOBILIS into a speed bump himself! It was shocking and as a witness to this horrific ignorance I must say I was ashamed to share the road with 4 wheelers!
