Winter Biking Above Arctic Circle

CommunityJames Hipkiss

Two Brits taking to their bikes in northern Scandinavia for a 3 week winter cycle tour. Starting in Kiruna in Sweden, they will ride through Finland and into Norway where they will follow the Arctic Highway to Tromso. Covering about 500 miles they will be camping in temperatures down to -30C and will have only a few hours of daylight each day.

You can read more about the trip on Helen's website: Helen's Take On... and Shane's website: Winter Cycle Touring - They'll be tweeting as they go, so long as their fingers don't freeze if you want to follow them... @helenlloyd and @shanecycles, #icenutz
