Teaser of things to come

For a couple years in a row me and some friends been visiting Björkliden for some big mountain adventures.
Björkliden is ski resort far up in Lapland way above the arctic circle. During summer they´re mostly visited by hikers. But the surroundings offers epic mountain biking. After our last trip an idea about an international bike summit started to spin in our heads.

Back on the ice

After seven days of constant snowing, resulting in a new record, 113 cm, the sun showed her face again. I finally got to take a little ride on the ice before work.

It’s a blessing to get out for about 30 minutes and do this. The iceroad goes aroud our town and is a great recreation place.

Still, after living my whole life by the sea. I’m stunned by the beauty of the ice and the crazy contrasts of living in a place where the seasons are so far apart. Last summer was amazing with almost tropic temperatures.
