So, Kenny and I picked up Miss Jane at the Copenhagen airport Tuesday... and the giggle started and hasn't stopped since



We have had some nice touristic days... including sailing a viking long boat in the Roskilde fjord




While Dorthe has been at work Jane has been getting over the jetlag after the 20.000k's flight + orientating herself on the right hand side of the road

The big plan.... to go riding heading off today for 4 weeks just meandering around Denmark, bits of Sweden and maybe Norway

Get back to you soon... see ya'

Catch you later, Miss Jane and GSDane.

To say I'm jealous is an understatement.
What a great 4 weeks you have ahead of you.

Enjoy

G'day again...

Thank for all your messages and best wishes
Good to be back on doing a ride report

Well, left home heading for Sweden and first stop was the ferry between Helsingor and Helsingborg... we kind of left a bit late leaving us riding through the dark and colder hours - and therefore preparing - as in rain gear - before departing the ferry and touching down on Swedish soil

Miss Jane is learning about dressing up in Scandinavia

We arrived in the dark at 22.30 at the cosy cabin of a friend... with the tiny woodstove roaring and a cuppa waiting for us
Next day the program was set... participating in a navigational ride including GPS-waypoints, tricky questions, wheelbarrow challenges and roadbook

Meeting point at the big moose


Lots of different bikes and partipants...


How many wooden doors are facing the road? The correct number was to be used in finding the GPS-koordinates for the meeting point at the special test


Lots of great riding with the typical Swedish single lane dirt roads winding through the landscape with a mixture of small forests and paddocks, including running through farm yards
Rain gear... during the night before and during the morning the rain had been pretty persistent... but after the morning briefing and departure for the ride the skies cleared and we only had a couple of showers during the day

More to come...

The ride continues...

Another stop for a question on the route


What is the square result of the mobile number? ... another digit for the GPS-coordinate

The answer is 6

Dorthe working her brain on a question...


Another stop at a old mill...




Uhhh, we forgot to introduce ourselves - Team Emu Racing.. as the sticker shows

Very fast... all over the place

Great little spot for lunch...


Which also included a question - the third digit in the year the old man was sadly kicked to death by a horse?


Miss Jane's bike on the track leading to another clue... great fun riding


The clue... which direction does the ridge on the rock run?


Dorthe doing her thing...


The difference between the distances of the towns (tricky one )?


Finally at the special test - at a neat little cottage


With coffee and cake... riders gathering


Yep, riders gathering


Catch ya' later
Miss Jane and GSDane.

Miss Jane has been known to disappear of the track into the undergrowth in the past. Good to see she is keeping up her reputation on the other side of the world.
Have fun girls.
