If anyone of you that doesn’t live in Norway (or Switzerland maybe) had been riding with us today you had moved to Norway. Starting to ride with the ocean through an old town downside some mountains at 400-600m. Continuing next to a fjord between the mountains, passing a small town and then riding along the water on a small road meeting many riders and passing a peloton. Not so much cars as they are on a bigger road higher up.
clothing like this and perfect sunny spring weather. Over a bridge to Norways biggest inland island. Looks like this at first:
And yes, there is snow on top of the mountain to the right. So more in on the island and passing a lake:
Going uphill a really nice climb with switchbacks and all of that before we go downhill very long on a straight. Then a smaller road on the countryside where everything seems just WOW. When God created landscape he had his peak in Norway I think. Back to the bridge on a small road:
And then back around Ulriken as I posted pictures on before and you don’t want to see pictures from there today. Specially not on me as I started to get tired before Ytre Arna and after Åsane I just seemed dead, not so stylish as I wanted to be. In Eidsvågsneset I was so tired I only had one slow speed and felt like I just wanted to fall in a ditch and sleep for a while. But there where no ditches so had to pedalling.
But I won as when I heard of ice cream at Bryggen. Had to survive and I did thanks to my good friends. Stopped and parked our bikes and Roger took a photo:
The three Sram Redbikes, Petter who uses Shimano Dura-ace didn’t have time for ice cream but he has supported me with the earlier pictures from his blog Brunost o Cykelolja
And then after some time in the que we got our ice. Me and Birgitte enjoying good ice cream in the sun:
Not my best pose but it’s because I was so tired 😉
Ending with thanking my Carbomaniawheels for the speed today 🙂
