I have been looking forward to a cycling holiday for weeks. The Scottish part of the famous North Sea Cycle Route, however, is a real dream route: through sleepy fishing villages, secluded stretches of land and always along the coast. It's just that the weather here is known to be quite unpredictable. There's almost always a fresh wind blowing. This is no problem with my ¾ tights that also keep my knees warm. And because the seat cushioning made in Italy makes riding on the bike all day so comfortable, I can really let the impressions of the landscape sink in on me.
