Big mountain weekend – Day three

Riding down to Rombaksbotten from Riksgränsen is a trail i’ve been longing to do for years. It’s the old support trail for the railway that runs from the mountains down to the fjords by the atlantic ocean. This is an epic 15 kilometer ride of awesome single track through stunning nature.

IMG_7102.JPG We did a lot of filming and photographing. There sure will be more reports from this further on.
Well back home we had an excellent dinner at the hotel. The view from the restaurant in Björkliden is just stunning.

Big mountain weekend – Day two

The second day in Björkliden served up single track paradise. We headed for the highest situated mountain station in Sweden at 4000 ft above sea level. We did about 3000 ft on nine kilometers. One hell of a climb.

IMG_7071.JPG But well worth the effort since we got a fair decent as reward. Låktatjåkka mountain station serve awesome waffles and we had a great re-fuel before the decent.

Big mountain weekend – Day one

We finally got away on a big mountain weekend. Three days of fat bikes, rafting and beer drinking in Swedish Lapland. Me and Fredrik loaded up the minivan with fun stuff and headed to Bjorkliden.

IMG_7049.JPG We left a rainy Luleå and after a five hour drive we arrived at a mountain resort soaked in sun.

IMG_7028.JPG My buddy Kevin from the UK was already here and we hooked up for a brew planning the weekends adventures.

IMG_7045.JPG The Lars had some work obligations and will join tomorrow.
I have a feeling this weekend is going to be awesome. Stay tuned….
