Norway

Today I posted a thread in the Touring section and 4 hours later I got a superb answer. Does it always goes so quick in here? My girlfriend and I are planning a tour from Nice to Barcelona this summer, so we need all the info we can get (read more in the Touring section).

Two years ago a changed from my first Gary Fisher (Big Sur) to my orange Joshua F3 which I have now. It's really great! I want a racingbike as well, but my economy says no I'm afraid.

Last summer a friend and I when rollerblading from Bergen to Oslo (500km) in a good 5 days trip. Spent two days on the wheels with rain and wind, and the last three with no clouds at all. Many places the road was terrible for blading, but for bicycling it's OK. We just found out it would be a excellent way to see a piece of Norway and get some training on the top, so we went away 20 June 01. For pictures, see http://home.chello.no/~grumant/retro.html

Please remember to check out the Touringpage and give us a lots of good ideas and info! Thanks to you all!

Four hours? Ah, it usually goes quicker. Sorry, we were slacking off...

Welcome to the forums! I like that picture. I always think different angle pictures are pretty neat.

See you around,

I was wondering about that pic; those wheels look bent all to heck to me.
