The Danish eldorado

We crossed the boundary (the authorities let us go even with our dirty smelly socks...). We passed the first step....Second step, here we come! Our minds are still in Norway, thinking of wild territories. Some many landscapes, how lucky we were for the weather, and the last but not the least: the erasmus life we left in Tromso. Amazing life! What a wonderful trip! So, what did happen since we left Trondheim...? Adios Trondheim: We took a good rest in the city even if we cycled 80km in the morning to reach the city... [Lire la suite]

Trondheim

The whole team is now arrived in Trondheim, the second biggest city in Norway after 1500km cycling but without any pain! Here is a small summary of the last days... The Lofoten Islands:Wonderful, Wunderbar! A lot of sun, steep mountains, blue-green waters. Simply the best. Bodø: The destination of our ferry from the Lofoten. After 3 hours, enjoying the sun and having a nap, the first kilometers were extremely difficult.

A hard day because of the road and also the weather.....I was still raining...I stopped and prepared my dinner at 10pm, exhausted but just in front of the fjord which will lead me to the...

We did it : 500 km cycling

After one week, one might say that when the weather is good it is  very nice to cycle everyday in Norway! We arrived yesterday in Svolvær in Lofoten islands, with the smile! Beautiful weather, beautiful landscape, what a nice country! Bicycles and bikers are still in a good shape, ready to make 150km a day after this little warm up. Sylvain started the trip yesterday from Tromsø and he will reach Svolvær the 30th of june. And then the team will be ready! You can see the start of the trip one Youtube, you just have to...

First Start

After some day packing and preparing the last stuff for our trip the first part of the team, namely Myrtille, Jose and Olivier, left under a beautiful sun! The official departure time was 2 pm today but as usual we were late and we left at 5pm! Thanks to all our friends who have been waiting for a couple of hours to see us leaving, who have helped us and who have created a nice start line! We got the first flat tire after 1.5 km but now everything is okay! Movies of the departure will be available soon on youtube, just write... [Lire la suite]
