The plan for the weekend was to take a longer ride to one of the islands in the archipelago. Jopik Gården at Hindersön got a great café with awesome waffles. But mother nature had other plans for us. Temperature dropped to around -30°C today and going out on a 40 km ride on the ice… Continue reading Stay frosty
Small adventures also count
It´s the small day to day things that makes the difference. Sure to plan the long adventures and ride them is fantastic. But it´s the time in between that you need to fill with pleasure. Todays micro adventure was an short morning ride with the fat bike around the ice road. Luleå is a town… Continue reading Small adventures also count
Fat biking + skiing = win/win
We had to flee away from the dull rainy days by the coast. Just 15 kilometers up country there is this small ski resort called Kåbdalis. It´s one of the resorts in Sweden that opens first in the season. Lots of alpine teams have their pre-season camps here before the world cup begins. I got… Continue reading Fat biking + skiing = win/win
A little bit like Hoth
We are having quite a rough start on the winter out by the coast of Swedish Lapland. A few days of cold weather and then temperature goes up and the snow turns to rain.

Autumn on pause.
It really looked good there for a while. Beautiful sunny days, a few centimeters of snow and temperatures below zero. The ices started to build up and it really felt like the winter was on its way. Then, the rain and warm winds came back. My cold, that´s been stuck on my lungs got worse… Continue reading Autumn on pause.

I got to say that i am mighty proud. =) (click on the pic and go to fat-bike.com) I know that i´ve been ranting about Fat-bike.com in the last posts. But they are… Continue reading Fat Video Tuesday & bad market evaluation.
Spreading the love…
So, i decided to try out a Facebook page for the blog. I´m a frequent FB user and i kind of spam my non-cyclist friends news feed with cycling stuff. Now i will try to separate them... Since i started up the blog the cycling community has gone global for me. It´s kind of nice… Continue reading Spreading the love…
