Isle of Snow

Winter is having a firm grip on our little arctic town. Loads of snow and handleable temperatures has made the the first weeks of 2018 pretty nice. It's still early in the season but the archipelago is calling and i need to get out there. Both me and Andreas had The Wednesday off and we … Continue reading Isle of Snow

Getting out there

Ice been covering the bay for a few weeks now. But heavy snowfall followed by low temperatures makes conditions a bit difficult. Today it was a few degrees below freezing and me and Andreas decided to try to cross over to Gråsjälören , the tiny island in the city bay where there's waffles and coffee … Continue reading Getting out there

So it begins

The last few days have been cold. This morning the thermometer showed -17 Celsius i had the morning off and it´s about time to check the status of the ice. When it´s cold the ice grows fast but it´s still to early to go far out. I took about an hour spin to check the … Continue reading So it begins

In between

November, the most dull month of the year. It´s that time when we´re just waiting for the winter to arrive. Short days, rain, cold but not dry like in the winter. But all of a sudden temperature drops and the sun show herself. This year i have not visited Sandön at all with my bike. … Continue reading In between

Mind the gap

Living in a part of the world where we get proper seasons is pretty sweet. Bright warm summers and cold dark winters makes one appreciate things a little bit more. I love the contrasts of beach riding and going far out on frozen water with just months in between. The only time of year that … Continue reading Mind the gap

All Mountain weekend, Reinnesfjellet slick rock, Norway

Since we´re far up in the arctic we might as well go to Norway. I love the Swedish mountains but Norway is something complete different. That might sound strange when we´re so close to each other. But really it´s a huge different, higher peaks, steeper mountains and the fjords.... About one hour drive from Björkliden … Continue reading All Mountain weekend, Reinnesfjellet slick rock, Norway
