Summer trip 2016 – Stockholm to Bergen Day One

Another summer and another bike trip, after 3 years in a fairly flat Finland the trip this year was Sweden and Norway.

The plan was to head west towards Västerås, go up through Dalarna (the “Valley county) and over the border close to Hamar, have a rest day at my grandmothers place before biking over the mountains and the Rallarvegen road to Flåm, before heading to Bergen via the Hardangerfjord road. In the days and weeks to come I’ll make posts about the trip, starting with the first day in this post


Day 1: Home to somewhere north of Västerås.

The day started around 08.00 with breakfast of oatmeal porridge I think, before we went outside with the whole family for a picture and departure around 0900.

Weather during departure was awesome, we had 20 something in the morning and it went on to be close to 35 in the evening, fairly uneventfull journey from home to our first big stop in Enköping and same before Västerås.

Long stretches of country roads in fairly good condition, a nice place to eat a apple!

A small kiosk on the way to Enköping, opened by some people who got tired of working with IT in Stockholm

The roads to and over Ekolsund was random, first awesome road shoulders, then some crushed rocks where what someone said was where the old railway went.

Meeting up with mom and dad and the new RV they bought, for some food in Västerås.

After Västerås came another fairly uneventfull part of Sweden, fields and some forests on the way north towards Fagersta and our camp site just north of Ramnäs in a place called Utomhusbad Brattheden.

We found a nice public bath with a nice beach and floating dock, it even had toilets (outhouse style, no running water) and a patch of forest for us to camp in.

Sitting by the beach enjoying some pasta, sausage, halloumi and stuff!

This was our campsite for the night, nice view with the sun setting

So this was our first day, more to come later, when ever I can get my self to keep posting!

  1. Bicycling in 35 degrees is hard I think, I guess you needed a lot of water/liquid during the day. Looking forward to follow your blog about the trip 🙂

    • Hi Peggy, yeah the heat was almost as bad as the cold wet weather, but I still prefer the sun 😀
      I Think we went through 4 or 5 litres of water and a litre of electrolyte drinks for that part!

      • We had a nice little 4 days biking trip too. Island to island along our county coast. I think we had the best weather to wish. Cloudy, 18-20 degrees 🙂 But we did not ride the bike for more than 10-15 km a day 🙂

  3. This is the perfect web site for anybody who really wants to find
    out about this topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough
    to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been discussed for decades.
    Excellent stuff, just great!

    proprietary or public – from it and to participate
    in “virtual teamwork” (see next chapter). The company’s server can be accessed by anyone authorized,
    from anywhere, at any time (with local – rather than international – communication costs).

    you have a reliable and trustworthy hacking tool that can generate plenty of Tokens
    for you. Even the concept of “interactivity” points at a preference for raw materials with which one can interact.

    The development of measures to safeguard server routed inter-organizational communication (firewalls) is the solution to one of two obstacles to the institution of the Intranet.
    The phone is dependent on the existence of two or more parties simultaneously.

  5. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
    I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would
    have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  6. Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed
    some nice procedures and we are looking to
    trade solutions with others, why not shoot me an email
    if interested.
