Please let me introduce you to the newest member of my (ever growing) gear family: Olaf. Olaf is a 2016 Cannondale Synapse Carbon Tiagra, and he is a whopping 51cm in size (not that he will grow much or anything…). I feel like a completely fraud because he is just so sexy and the last bike I sat on was a Boris Bike on a ride through London’s Hyde Park. But it’s absolute bike love at first sight.
About the name? Well, he is mostly white with only a little bit of orange. Kind of like a snowman? And the coolest snowman out there…? … Is Olaf, you guessed it.
I am absolutely ecstatic about the fact that I can soon spend my weekends on long rides around Dorset (recommendations please!) and that I’ll be generally much more independent in my new little home. Olaf to me is the start of something great. Or maybe a step up from that even because I am pretty damn happy at the moment. And all I want to do is shout that out into the world and share it with you! Here’s to Olaf!
