Arctic life style

Got up this morning and the thermometer says -16 Celsius. Few things gets me going like cold weather and blue skies. It must be something in the blood with us Northlings. We were just made for this. Frost biting your cheeks and gets stuck the beard, i just want to stay outside. But it´s just another Tuesday and i take my regular ride to work and stop by the south harbor. I stop by here almost every day before work, to suck in the great outdoors to last a day indoors.  My shop i just a couple of hundred meters away. I love the sea, summer and winter. Its´s  the contrasts between seasons that never stop to amaze me.

December is a dark month. The days are still getting shorter until winter solstice 21 of December. The few hours of daylight is very special. Sun rise around 10 a´clock and sets a few hours later. If the skies are clear the light this time of year is really special. Like a sunset that goes on for a few hours.

Very soon the ice will be thick enough to ride. They already started the ice-road  plowing and i cant wait to get to Sandön and hit the shores on the outside.

This might be my last post before the big update. Stay tuned for Bike Life in Swedish Lapland 2.0

B.L.i.S.L 2.0

It´s been almost four years since i started Bike Life in Swedish Lapland, four awesome years. I´ve gotten new friends all over the world. It has opened up for me too write for, Salsa Cycles culture blog and When i began it was obvious that i should write in English. I wanted to reach wider audience and also to prove how alike we are. I have the same feelings and references as my Japanese, Irish or South American bicycle friends.

It´s been my dream and a idea since i started to take this blog a step further. Now it is finally time. Bike Life in Swedish Lapland is now turned in to a little company. The site will get an update and i will add a little webshop. I will still keep on writing about my passion for bikes and living on the 66 north degree in Luleå Swedish Lapland. In the webshop you will find some cool B.L.i.S.L merchandise and some cool t-shirts from my favorite brand. I will add more cool stuff further on.

New site teaser

My good friend Lars is helping me with the new site and the plan is to launch Wednesday 7th of December. I´m not sure if you who are following me by email will continue to do that. But there will be a “Follow me” button on the new site too.
