If you say to any Swede that you cycle you will get the question: Have you ridden Vätternrundan? A huge amateur ”race” around Swedens 2nd biggest lake and 297km long.
Now I’ve done it!
And I had a fun time. Rode with She Rides Sub10 (under 10h) and there are some amazing people there who always spread joy. After riding a lot this year it was an easy ride which made it easier to just enjoy.
And to be able to take some pictures while riding 😉 here in Bankeryd:
Finished like this 😉
Before the start at the house we stayed at, 5.30 and started 6.02 which was a perfect time (just like a Le Peloton)
In Kaxholmen where I usually get dropped but even created gaps while taking it easy today:
Up in Kaxholmen:
Was a bit wet in beginning but Peter was happy:
Our 1st stop in Fagerhult:
The best support. My dad came with coffee and cinnamon rolls, awesome ❤
Jessica and Lotta in Karlsborg:

Me and the group in Karlsborg 😀
Me and Peter leading the group after too many kilometers on boring roads we finally found some good ones 😀
Smaller road without traffic 🙂
Our awesome group after finishing my longest ride:
Hopefully no one got angry about me talking about ice cream for 297km. My Café du Cycliste did it’s job too and I felt good all day on my Specialized S-Works Toupe saddle 🙂 Good power transfer without hurting my feets with Specialized S-Works Sub6 shoes. Aero and fast with my Specialized S-Works Evade helmet with my lovely Oakley Jawbreakers.
But the thing that worked flawless, begged for attacks and felt good all day as it never had too big bottles is my Specialized S-Works Tarmac disc! Fast and fun without any problems:
I love to just step on a bike and feel like home. Feel that everything is right and don’t worry about that something will break or not be enough. Or loosing grip in the wet like I did see one guy do in front of me in Bankeryd. Specialized S-Works Turbo tires are just awesome 😀
Big Thanks to Jessica who’s got She Rides and to Noor who was todays leader.
