Cycling Phase Completed at Europe’s Northernmost Tip
Rob and Poldy have made their way to Tromso, Norway the furthest north tip of Europe. This cuulmonates 5 weeks of cycling across northern Europe from Calais, France in the wake of their swim across the English Channel. The latest portion of their journey showed a wealth of idyllic photos of fjord and mountain landscape.
Since they are sworn to make the journey completely by human-power, when a body of water must be crossed, they cannot simply take the ferry. They purposely chose a route across Norway that minimized ferry crossings. Nevertheless, at least three times since Germany, they have had to organize crossing such bodies by kayak, paddleboard or swimming. Most recently, across the Bognes to Skaberget fjord, they chose to kayak.
This marks the end of part 3 out of 5 of their mega 'triathlon'. Next up, a sea-kayak crossing through Arctic conditions of the Barents Sea to Svalbard.
