Although this post is not necessarily about a ride, I did spent my whole 10 days on this workshop playing around on my bike whenever I got a chance and the scenery was so incredible I had to post something about it.
As part of my university course this semester we had to travel to a small island way up in the north of Norway just of the coast of Bodø to a small island called Fleinvaer, we had been up here only a few weeks ago building a small shelter but on the mainland and that time I regretted that I did not bring my bike as the mountains and scenery are just incredible here, despite only coming to a small island of 2 miles long by 0.5 miles wide I still brought my bike in case I had the chance to ride on the mainland after the workshop.
We were here to build a small sauna and changing room and spent most of every day building, working or cooking which didn’t really leave much time for me to ‘ride’ however with the island being so small I actually managed to ride just about every little track in any spare 5 minutes we had, the longest downhill being about 100m long, I did ride my bike to work every day though which meant I could leave the building a whole 3 minutes after everyone else.
I will just write something short and let the photos do the talking. Although I was a little disappointed to learn we would be coming to a tiny island for our 2nd workshop up here unlike the first one was which was set beneath 1000m high mountains I really didn’t mind once we arrived and spent a day on the island, ok so there was not so many tracks to ride my bike on and it was a huge faff bringing it here however the setting was breathtaking. From the top of the smallest little hill on the island you could just see for miles and miles, you saw all the tiny islands in our little archipalaego, you saw the sea for miles and miles, you saw the mountains on the mainland in the distance creating quite a stunning skyline and much more. This place is definitely one of the most amazing places I have been to in my life with all of the above mentioned things along with the most incredible sunsets every night giving an orangey pink glow to the island along with northern lights every. single. night. you can’t ask for much more picturesque scenery.
