    Great stuff–thanks for sharing the experience.

  • Mark

    So great Adam. Thanks for this unique insight.

    Awesome write-up .. all I did was intervals around an industrial part of town. Quite jealous.

    • Thanks, there are some incredible roads. Not sure how they would be without road closures though!

  • Unbelievable

    Awesome write up. I was further north in Norway, doing an MTB race while this tour was on. I can certainly vouch for it being wet. Every day.

    • Thanks mate. Yeah it has some rough weather, but it is a stunning country.

        Have spent quite a bit of time in Bergen on Norway’s west coast. Wettest city in Europe. Not heavy, just constant. It’s the gulf stream moving warm water north past the coast, keeps the air warm so instead of snow it falls as rain. So you get used to putting on and taking off a lot of water proof gear, even for the walk to work. But the landscape. To die for.

    Thanks for sharing, Adam.I can almost feel the cold and rain as I sit here in Tas. reading this.

    Great writeup Adam and loved the video too. Brought back memories for me although I was much luckier with the weather when I was there. You might like to see my adventure – http://www.cyclelogical.tv/2015/09/15/lysebotn-climb/

    • Thanks.. and I checked out your blog – stunning ! You definitely got better weather

  • Your writing reminds me of The Rider.

    • Thanks! I am yet to read Tim Krabbe’s novel, but given what I have heard about it, I know that’s a complement :)

    Thank you for your view of Tour des Fjords. The weather in the western part of our country is very wet, but the landscape is spectacular if you had the time to look at it. The eastern part of Norway, where I live, has a way better climate!

    • Thanks, and yes, despite the wet conditions it was some of the most spectacular landscapes I’ve seen.

  • Michael Jeffs

    Really nice write up Adam, it sounds incredible! Quick question, with the demise of Drapac at the end of the year where will you be heading?

    • Thanks Michael! Will keep you posted where I end up next year :)

  • Stian Tveit

    This story was something else. Thank you Adam.
    Greetings from Norway.

    A mate has been trying to get me to join him on a ride from Oslo to North cape next year – this ride blog and indeed a previous vlog of yours is ample evidence that this is a not a wise thing to do! Thanks again for the eloquence – I totally agree that Tim Krabbe has a worthy rival.

    • I’d still say it would be worth it, just for the adventure alone. You’d definitely remember it for life! Thanks for that :)

    • Dave

      Ask not whether it would be wise, but whether it would be awesome!

      • blimit

        Agreed Dave but now my being the wrong side of 60 yrs, the prospect of a wet ride of 100k, camp – repeat daily for 5 weeks is a tad harsh despite the awesome scenery.

  • Nathan

    Fantastic writing Adam – I agree with Inopinatus, very reminiscent of Tim Krabbe. This is among the best writing I have seen on a cycling page anywhere, as good or better than Tom Palmer’s efforts of a while back. You can fight that one out when you are both back in Canberra!
