Arctic to Africa

Making it to Stockholm

We left Nordkapp on Thursday 30th May. 15 days of cycling, 1 rest day and 1200ish miles later we arrived in Stockholm. What an achievement!!

It feels like months ago we were cycling to the top of Norway in the midnight sun but it was a mere 2 weeks ago. We have covered a huge distance in such a short time. Most cyclists we have met along the way have allowed twice the amount of time to cover the same distance.

It’s been quite the adventure so far. Cycling in the midnight sun, seeing reindeer in the wild, loosing a team mate and finding him again, plenty of bike trouble, hijacking a pedalo, cheating death on the roads in Sweden, wild camping in a Grill Hut, grimacing through torrential rain and crossing the Arctic Circle.

Tomorrow we head off towards Copenhagen, after about 4 days of cycling we will cross in to our 4th country Denmark. We are a day behind schedule already so will have to make up the miles over the coming weeks.

Another late arrival to the campsite. Cycled along this gorgeous river at sunset though.
