Cycling Norway in October - Advice
Hey all, so i need to some help.
I am currently on exchange in Denmark and i've been slowly upgrading an abandoned bike into a touring rig. Holidays are coming up soon so i figured i'd cycle up to and around Norway for approx 20 days.
However, whilst i am reasonably experienced in long-distance cycling, i am unfortunately (coming from the tropics and flatness of Australia's north), inexperienced in mountain riding and more importantly cold weather conditions. I've been a long time lurker, and this forum really keeps me motivated to keep getting out there and member's information has been invaluable but i have some more questions i haven't been able to find the answers to.
a) are there any things i should be particularly aware of whilst cycling in Norway i.e apparently the 'cycling season' for the route from Voss to Gelio closes in early September. Is it still passable in early Oct.?
b) Any tips for mountain cycling?
c) Any tips and advice for cold weather cycling and camping?
d) Anything else i am forgetting?
Cheers in advance
