Pro Cycling

  • πŸ‡«πŸ‡· The Tour de France 2023 is underway with nine stages completed. My favorite cyclist is currently 17 seconds behind in the GC1. I watch every stage and even my children know the teams, riders, peloton, and breakaways. Proud father moment!
  • 🀨 I can’t help but feel a bit2 jealous when I see others like Jakub making the most of their time on the bike Co zwrΓ³ciΕ‚o mojΔ… uwagΔ™ w czerwcu 2023 - Bobiko β–ͺ Blog. Their inspiring posts serve as motivation for me, and I hope to share similar experiences in the future.
  • ⛔️ Unfortunately, I’m spending more time not riding than actually on the bike at the moment.

No cycling

  • πŸ†• I planned to do a #newbikeday post recently, I was very close to do that, but the reality is that I’m still waiting for my new bike.
  • πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ New one arrived, with Rowermistrz’s help I was able to change wheels from Shimano to SRAM system, I’ve mounted the pedals, the seat, added the bottle cages, added the bike computer mount. I was ready to ride, put 20km ride and I was experiencing some pain. After a few days, I went for a bike fitting session and even though we tried, we weren’t able to find a good position for me on this bike. So… I’ve ordered a bigger model and in the meantime, I have to revert all the changes I’ve made to the bike. Not a big deal, but still, I’m not riding, and the previous bike is in pieces in my garage.


  • πŸ› οΈ This is the biggest refactoring of recent weeks – equipped with new tools, I’m ripping off the old layer of oil and damaged wood! I estimated it for a few sessions after work, but of course it’s taking longer.
  • πŸ’ͺ I’ve made some early progress even though my children says I look like Bear Grylls during the process!
  • β€οΈβ€πŸ©Ή But my tool broke down, I pushed too hard πŸ˜‚
  • 🩹 Unfortunately, I’ve made a mistake and I accidentally injured myself with the angle grinder. I’m fine, it’s just a finger but I had to pause and take some antibiotics πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ


  • πŸ“š I finished reading Sooner Safer Happier and found it insightful for improving in the coming weeks. The quote “Be the best at being better” resonated with me.
  • 😎 We had a great time at company retreat, it was so nice to see people with legs3 and have a proper amount of laughs and fun!
  • 🍿 I watched Extraction (2020) - IMDb and Extraction II (2023) - IMDb – I’m a simple man and I enjoyed them!
  • I’m also experiencing with Trakt, as I’ve never used it before, and even though I initially went for Letterboxd, I’m not sure if I’ll stick with it. I don’t need a social network for movies, I just want to track what I’ve watched and what I want to watch. Plus, Letterboxd doesn’t allow to track TV Shows, and I have to use a separate app for that. I’ll see how it goes. Thanks to Marco for sparking my interest in exploring different platforms.
  • πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ For ChatGPT stuff, I went for TypingMind β€” A better UI for ChatGPT, which is exactly what it promises to be – A better UI for ChatGPT. This time, the trigger for me was the invoice for ChatGPT Plus compared with the spending through API. After 3 secs calculation, I decided to go for an API-only approach and found TypingMind. Works great!
  • πŸ“Έ I’m quite happy with the drone photos I’ve made recently!
  • πŸ’¬ I found an article about blog comments and using Activity Pub for that Toot toot! Mastodon-powered Blog Comments β‹… Cassidy James Blaede – it looks like something I have on my site right now, but without all of the Webmentions stuff. I’ll have to look into it.

  1. General Classification, the main ranking in the Tour de France. The rider with the lowest time wins the race. ↩︎

  2. To be honest, QUITE A LOT!!! ↩︎

  3. These days, most of the time we see each other on video calls, so it was nice to see people who are more than just a head and shoulders. ↩︎
