new Garmin Speed Sensor and Cadence Sensor

magnet-less... no more magnet displacements, no tie-wraps, easy transfer between bikes, even a bit lighter than the old ones... Compatible with all Garmin GPS devices.
update 1: The functionality and accuracy were tested and confirmed during Sunday ride on two VCC bikes. No problems, except an instant auto pause/resume a couple of times (while riding at high speeds on "bumpy" pavement), but that is reported as a Garmin Edge 500 firmware 3.30 bug...
update 2: After riding for about 1000km with no problems, these are considered highly recommended...


chasing & being chased ...

Ymittos climb

the two Bianchisti were the only club members active this Sunday... A great climb to Ymittos (that was closed to motor vehicle traffic!) was our generous reward...

climbing Mystras...

... on a warm Saturday morning, away from big city traffic, was a "divine gift" for me this weekend. I was riding solo, had good legs, and all I could hear was my heavy breathing, the bike chain rattle and water running from the mountain brooks... At some point around the middle of the climb, I sensed a car following me and, while moving to the right to let them pass, I heard the cheerful calls of Pavlos and Eleni. Pavlos Pavlidis is a dear friend and a stunning photographer and he didn't miss the chance to take some snaps. Thanks, Pavlos!
