Summer Norwegian Road Oddessy pt. 1
January 27, 2016
Parker Dusseau Ambassador, Norwegian cyclist and photographer Magnus Roaldset Furset catalogs last summer's journey through Norway's Møre & Romsdal region with San Francisco cyclists Jennie Anderson and Shanna Sauer.
With temperatures hovering around37ºF, the first of the group reaches the top of Dalsnibba (1476 mt.) after a long trip from the bottom of the Geiranger fjord.
As the group makes its way from Geiranger to Dalsnibba, busses full of tourists gawk at the riders - in awe of the distance yet left to cover.
The King: Cyclists come out of the clouds and through the Trollistigen Plateau while King (1617m.) awaits. After this long ascent, riders are awarded with a long, rolling descent into the next valley.
Trollstigen is one of Norway's most popular climbs. With 11 hairpin turns, the road served as an ancient trade route between two fjords.
