Ditto here. We rode the Kattegatleden from Gothenburg to Copenhagen a couple of years ago. I really liked Sweden.

It will be done soon, life has been very busy lately.

Nice one sir :-bd

Really enjoying the write-up, will look forward to the next part. Having spent a fair bit of time in Finland (not riding), it has rekindled my desire to explore Scandinavia again - I love the landscapes and, strangely enough, the monotony of it if that makes sense? Beautiful, vast, and not too populated - and not that far away.

My Swedish was a couple f words and google translator. Everybody I met spoke far better English than half of my neighbours do at home!

Indeed! It's very difficult trying to speak any of the language in Scandinavia, apart from greetings and thank yous. Almost to a person, you are spotted a mile off and you will be schooled in the English language (in a good way) by someone speaking in their second or third language! :grin:

dlovett - how many people took part in the event? The start line photo made it look like about 7!

I was in Malmo earlier this year, and managed to order a meal for four without the guy at the counter starting to talk to me inEnglish!

Yes as it was the ‘beta test’ there were five swedes, one Belgianand myself. Another Swedish guy did the baby version. A lot of people have expressed interest to the organisers for next year. I think they willl cap at 30-40 riders due to the tracking and basecamp size.

I have an automatic place luckily.
