Hi all Been thinking about doing another Norway trip this year but it was getting later and later in the season and I hadn't gotten the thumb out of my ass yet. We've had a lot of rain here in Norway/Sweden in September and I've been checking out the weather reports every week to try and find one weekend without too much rain. I was looking at the report one Friday at work in the end of September and it looked pretty good so I decided to go for it the same day. I had planned a short weekend route months ago with the main goal to drive Aursjøvegen (Aursjøroad). It's a spectacular gravel road that was built as a service road for a hydropower dam on top of the mountain. The route looks like this: http://maps.google.se/maps/ms?msid=...0&ll=62.507247,9.481201&spn=1.917339,4.938354 I went home from work early to get as far in to Norway as I could that day. It started raining a bit in Sweden but luckily it stopped in Norway cause I hate having to put up my tent while it's raining. I found an OK spot near the road to camp for the night. Cozy huh? I love good food and it's just wonderful to get some well cooked Italian food and rinse it down with a Czech lager after a long day in the saddle. It got really cold during the night so note to self: Buy a warmer sleeping bag till next year. It was a hell of a fog that morning but I started cruisin towards Sunndalsøra where the gravel road begins. I got there pretty early and turned on the helmet cam and started filming. <object height="480" width="853"> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/4Z3ghSfqJUA?version=3&hl=sv_SE" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" height="480" width="853"></object> I took a bunch of photos as well. I can highly recommend this road if you're thinking about riding in Norway, but really the roads and scenery are beautiful anywhere you go in this country so you really can't go wrong. <object height="480" width="853"> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/AJoMoR6rcSs?version=3&hl=sv_SE" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" height="480" width="853"></object> Nice little cemetery right next to a fjord. I made a quick stop at Trollveggen (The Troll Wall) and snapped a couple of pictures. I've had a lot of problems with sore knees while driving full days before but that problem vanished as soon as I bought me some highway pegs for the Murmansk trip I made earlier this summer. Best investment on the bike so far! Because of the heavy raining this autumn there has been a lot of landslides in Norway and I came across this one. I always get fascinated by the green color of the water here in Norway, it doesn't look like this where I'm from. I just couldn't stop riding that day so I ended up driving around 800km on these twisty roads. Great fun! Thats it for this time, hope you enjoyed it!
