The Tibidabo run

The results of the Tibidabo run:

Uptime: 59 min
Downtime: 54 min

Except the apparent difference between up and down, the roads chosen were not the same. Running up I chose what I know to be the shortest possible way, taking the rough paths rather then roads, which I chose on the way down. The two distances were circa 8 and 12 kilometers, making it a bit over 10 km/h. Not bad, but I will of course make another attempt to improve it as soon as I can. ;)

Good beats for going Tibidabo up:

  • Vitalic – Woo
  • Thomas – Brinkmann Piste 7
  • The Egg – Wall (Mylo Remix)
  • The Tough AllianceMany Man

Great beats for going Tibidabo down:

  • Foo Fighters – Breakout
  • Tiga – Jamaican Box
  • Missy Elliot – Loose Control (Scumfrog rmx)
  • Kaiser Chiefs – I predict a Riot




The monestary is visible from a long distance





Some people choose to bike up, good not to be the only one that is crazy...



Communcation tower, I think it was drawn by Calatrava...



T-tags everywhere...



Blackberries - the favourites besides cherries






View over Barcelona














Amusement park next to the monestary, suitable choice



Monestary









The guy guarding the monestary, stiff most of the time













The explanation to the name of the mountain...



Can you see it (him)?



Yes, it's a wild boar!

Sadness! The video is "no longer available"!

Is it a conspiracy? A cabal of bitter novelists working to overthrow the percieved tyranny of modern media types?

Will this comment even reach you? Or will I be swiftly removed even as I type i...

No, apparantly not.
