Sweden !

We were a little sorry to leave Denmark behind as (in the rain again),we trundled over yet another mighty bridge (the Oresund Bridge between Denmark & Sweden – Europe’s longest at 7.85km). Paying about AUD$70 toll for the privilege of crossing and to be greeted by a Macdonalds as the first sight in Sweden…

I had thought that since Spring is just round the corner (although I’m not so sure having looked at the forecast for this weekend), I should finally write up about the winter bike ride in northern Scandinavia…
(Feel free to skip the writing and go straight to the end where there’s a short video Shane put together)

Still no real blog post, but do not worry – Here are some more photos from the 3-weeks of biking and camping in northern Sweden, Finland and Norway… Hopefully they speak for themselves.

If you haven’t seen the photos of the beautiful landscapes we biked through that I posted last week, they’re here.…

So I’m getting rather excited and with just the occasional fit of doubt, which may be more aptly described as ‘bricking it’. In only 15 more days I shall be landing in Kiruna in the far north of Sweden to meet up with Shane for a 3 week cycle ride, taking an indirect route, to Tromso in Norway.
Just another…

“STILL IN STROMSUND”

My first night in Stromsund was spent in a shower.
Well, not all night in the shower, but it was my first hot shower in 4 or 5 days, so I relished every last hot water droplet that came out of that shower head and probably stayed under the water for a full hour. I loved every…

“GETTING SPIKED in STROMSUND”

E45, north of Hammerdal, Sweden, Nov 2012.
After my 2 days in an emotional dungeon in Hammerdal and feeling a little bit unnerved, I hit the road on the third morning, determined to push on in a northerly direction.I’m starting to find that these moments, these states of mind that I’m having that seem to be steering…

RECAP.

Margareta and Ludde.

My first nights camping after leaving TABY, just north of Stockholm, was in LJUSDAL, about a 350 km ride. Not much progress for a days riding but I had a late start from Taby. I tried to leave by 8 am but between one thing and another it was nearly 1pm before I was finally motoring in a northerly…

I really enjoyed Stockholm a lot, the architecture, the way the city is laid out, the myriad of winding little alleys and streets in Gamla Stan or
“Old Town” Stockholm, and of course my visit to the Ice Bar Stockholm in the post before this one here on the blog.Gamla Stan is a “Must See” for visitors to Stockholm, it would be a disservice…

 ICEBAR, Stockholm Sweden.

While I was Sidelined in Stockholm I made use of the downtime and went in to see the ICEBAR which is located in the Nordic Sea Hotel at Vasaplan 4, right beside Stockholm Central Station in the heart of Stockholm City Centre. I went there one afternoon just to take a few pictures of the bar, but was told I had to pay to…

The old Tuborg Brewery in Hellerup, just north of Copenhagen Denmark.

Before I got to Sweden and up to Vejbystrand I had a small amount of time in Denmark.
Stopping only for a picture and not the full brewery tour at the Tuborg offices, my destination for that day was Helsingor.
 If you keep riding north from Denmarks capitol of…
