      Summer 2013: We started in Keflavik (airport) and cycled to Reykjavik on the 41. Busy road and not nice to cycle on the main road. The same for leaving Reykjavik. But the city was lovely! Happily we discovered some cycle lanes and we cycled to Þingvellir, Geysir (Gullfoss) and to Flúðir, Arnes en Hrauneyjar. One of the most beautiful parts of Iceland is Landmannalaugar! There we cycled in 3 days on the F208 to the '1'. From the Skeiðarársandur and the Breiðamerkursandur to the glacier lake Jökulsárlón. Then to Höfn and Djúpivogur. In Djúpivogur we took the bus to Akureyri. It took 7 hours and 412 km by bus to avoid a 'boring cycling' part of this beautiful country. Also the weather forecast wasn't good. In Akureyri we had some resting days and we continued cycling on the '1' heading to Varmahlíð. We crossed Iceland on the Kjölur (F35) to the South in 4 days. Heavy wind! Mostly bad road conditions. Cycling is an adventure :-) For the second time we arrived in Gullfoss and Geysir. Asfalt. On the road '35' to Hveragerði, Þorlákshöfn, Grindavik and then to Keflavik again (427-road). Facts: - cycling days: 21 - distance: 1,268 km - total height climbed: 10,205 meters Music: - Steven Price & Felix Buxton & Simon Ratcliffe - Just Another Day (Attack the Block) - Gustavo Santaolalla - De Usuahia a la Quiaca (The Motorcycle Diaries) - Ólafur Arnalds - Near Light (2 versions) - Björk - Violently Happy (Debut)

      • Discover Iceland on Pedals

        by Enrico Macrelli This is a short film made in Iceland during the adventure called "Tour Iceland in Mountain-Bike" in summer 2012, in which we discovered this beautiful country and its internal desert route of Kjölur. The adventure is part of a project called "Scopri il Mondo sui Pedali" (Discover the World on Pedals) created by a set of ideas of four friends to rediscover the culture of travel. It is a way to see the world through different eyes and share the desire for knowledge, respect and solidarity with other peoples and cultures. The key issue is the protection of the environment, natural, geological and historical heritage of the places visited. The project aims to make "uncomfortable" travels but that are guaranteed to reach places absolutely unusual, and experience impossible to forget. After the experience of North Cape in 2010, this year raid by cycling, trekking, rafting are going to discover Iceland, covering over 1200 km in mountain-bike without any means of support but relying on their own resources, a journey into the land of extreme contrasts that flows around the Arctic Circle. Volcanoes, glaciers, lava fields, geothermal areas, black sand beaches formed wild landscapes that, according to the weather conditions and the intensity of light, can evoke the beginning or the end of the world. A great movie of the story will be released soon.
