Cycling across Norway

When your legs get tired, cycle with your heart…

The plan was simple: to cycle about 2500 km in 15 days. I did not plan too much, because I knew there would be changes along the route. So I had all 15 stops marked in google maps, and every day I would make sure the place I’d stay for the night was vacant. In my trolley I had backup tent etc, and all food and drinks I needed the next 10 hours, and extra clothes.

Plane ticket to Honningsvåg – check. Motivation – check

Cycling through Norway was more fun than expected.
