Ultracycling in Iceland in harsh conditions
I just came across this video on the Book of Faces and thought some here might find it interesting. It is a nice little video with some good footage. I started longer distance cycling (I do by no means qualify as an ultracyclist - 200K is as far as I can go) after I emigrated from Iceland so I have not done anything like this there but I know the Ring Road around Iceland like the back of my hand having lived in Iceland the first 31 years of my life. Too bad I don't understand Italian - I'd love to know what he is saying. Based on the weather conditions, this looks like late March to early April and I tip my helmet to him for doing this. Even fully supported, this is not easy.
Cycling is a very much a growing sport in Iceland and longer distance events seem to take place every other week now, at least over the summer months in case you are interested as the exchange rate is currently very favorable, at least if you pay with US dollars.
