Norway Cycle

  • 1000km in total, all inside the Arctic Circle.
  • It's an extraordinarily cyclist-friendly nation. Motorists held up busy roads, just to let me cross on my bike.
  • 24 hour daylight is a nice novelty, but you still need to sleep 8 hours a day.
  • The weather is ok! 50% sunshine, no rain, average 15 degrees C in the daytime.
  • Don't fly Economy with Scandinavian Airlines. *grumble*
  • All towns in Norwegian Lapland look boxy and boring, because of the Nazi's scorched earth policy.
  • There are a surprising number of fat Norwegians.
  • Great "right of access" rules. Camping out in the wild, FTW!
  • All in all, a great place if you like vast wilderness and reliable transport, and don't mind cooler weather and everything being expensive.
