Ride from Roskilde

"Denmark is great for riding" they said.
"It's a breeze!"

Oh it's a breeze alright. A 1000 km/h (approx) one heading straight into your face! I rode with James, another cyclist to Roskilde, where he had a ticket to the festival and I did not.

As there was nowhere to stay due to the thousands of people booked into all the hostels, we stealth camped in a small thicket not too far from town. It wasn't too bad actually.
We camped just behind me in the bushes



The ride from Roskilde to Vordingborg (90km) was a hard one (read first paragraph) and I arrived there absolutely exhausted. Upon finding a hostel, I had some small dinner, and hit the sack.
Typical Danish countryside

I'm fine, but I hope the riding gets better soon!

Hey Kil,

Looks like you are having fun. I like your pictures. I saw Transformers on the holidays and it was the best movie I have ever seen. School holidays are over now, wish I was you, on one big holiday.

And you wanted me to join you on this adventure, just imagine how I would cope with those conditions :s

Good to see you are getting in touch with the countryside by camping in it... who needs hostels haha.
