Usually procrastination revolves around watching biking videos on your laptop so that you are close to your work in case you suddenly feel inspired to do some (which never comes), however going for a ride sometimes is my procrastination when the urge becomes too strong.

Virtually the exact same ride as the night ride I posted recently however a whole lot less scary, I decided to go and see how fast I could hit the descent since there are a few sections on Strava for it. I managed to get 3rd out of 64 people who had recorded it, with the next guy only 2 seconds ahead and the top spot another 12 seconds ahead of that, he must be a frickin machine!

Aiming for top spot of La Vierge Noir descent on Strava is a pretty good procrastination activity if you ask me!

The same bridge as last time, but during the day. St. Eynard in the distance
