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
Finally the unrideble time is over. Those "inbetween" season months when riding is not an option is over. This year the ice is late due to a warm autumn . But the last few days we went way below freezing and last night was -17 degrees Celcius. And finally the ice is ready to ride.… Continue reading Ice premiere
Contrasts and new tires
Finally got my hands on VEE rubbers Snowshoe. The snowshoe is supposed to be 4.7" But the only measure around 4.3. Which suits the Mukluk just fine since it´s made for 4.0" tires. They fit fine in the frame but the chain line is a bit to tight with just 5 millimeter left to the… Continue reading Contrasts and new tires

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

But this year i just can't wait to try the fat bike at packed snowmobile trails. Still, we just got a few centimeters. I took… Continue reading Icebreakers waking up

That is the magic of the little things. We get up, fix breakfast. I´m finally coming around after a couple of… Continue reading The little things.
Family sunday on frozen water.
This sunday morning the sun stood high and the temperature was around 0°c. I packed the whole family in the car and went down to the ice road that surrounds our town. It runs between the north and south harbor here in Luleå and is popular spot during the winter. I brought my Gopro and… Continue reading Family sunday on frozen water.
