Riders 2021




Went to play in the ice for a bit, but it's time to get back on the bike! Less than 4 weeks left to be ready for adventurebikeracing #BikepackingAroundNorway! Since my test ride on the route last year I've learned a lesson or two and adjusted my strategy to optimise sleep and riding times while dealing with adverse weather. But maybe I've collected enough bad weather karma now? Or have I ridden in so much bad weather by now that I could use it to my advantage?!

28 hours before I head off, it's time for a #kitgrid! These are all the things I'll need to survive approximately 12 days on the road while I'm #bikepackingaroundnorway.
