This week, first-time contributor Kathryn Robinson has captured a number of routes from Sweden.
She’s filmed these with her husband Nathaniel, up on the border with Norway in Lapland, which is renowned for its rugged beauty, wild countryside and spectacular vistas.
“These routes are in our favourite landscape in Swedish Lapland, where we spend much of our free time. It is not a corner of Sweden that many people visit, so we wanted to share our experiences of this area. These are some of our regular rides from May to September when the quiet roads are free of snow. The air is always fresh here and it feels healthy taking deep breaths as we tackle some of the local hills.”
“None of the climbs are too long, and most of the landscapes are rolling and easy to ride so we can concentrate on the scenery and not just the effort. Although we didn’t capture any wildlife in these recordings, some highlights have been a timid brown bear, and a huge eagle. In the spring it is normal to share the road with reindeer. I have already bookmarked these rides in my own Favourites, to keep the memories of summer alive during dark days of winter.” – Kathryn Robinson.
Our pick this week is Tangvattnet, an easy ride with a mix of gravel roads, fire trails, and a few sealed sections. This route is a relatively easy ride with views of the rounded mountains of Vindelfjällen nature reserve.
You can find these rides under NEW in FulGaz or by searching Robinson.
