#Summer adventure 2016

Hopefully we’ll have better luck this time 😉 Last year was a bit disappointing when one of our bikes broke down after only 600 km….(#Nordkapp 2015 – Episode 1)

So, now we give it another try to take the dirt road from Stockholm and (almost) up to the North Cape 🙂

Finally, the bike season 2016 is on!

We’ve enjoyed an incredibly sunny and warm weekend here in Sweden. After a tenacious spring that never wanted to take off, it all came at once. We took our bikes and took off for a few days. A rented cottage by the sea, bbq at sunset and scenic tours in the Swedish forests.

Worst season ever!

winter storage

This weekend we took our bikes out one last time and gave them a proper cleaning. The time had come to say “thank you and goodbye” for this season and lock them up in their winter rest.

This season will go down as our lousiest so far, when it comes to kilometers. There were five shorter trips of a few days each (in Sweden and Norway), during spring and early autumn. The big summer trip we had been looking forward to, and that would give us about 5000 km, was a disaster because of a bike that broke down… 😦

Sometimes you can’t do much about it. We just have to look forward till next spring. But some memorable moments we had after all 🙂
