    What about the Norwegians..you might pick up something..

    On the sea and on the land,
    the idea,
    the exploring,
    the crossing,
    spirit and fighting..
    to achive something more than cycling or going around the block.
    Watch those three "modern" selected history and videos from Norway explorers.
    I have no problems to see that they bring a will to continue for the the tourer.

    The Norwegians really did the **** or what, i dont even going to link about Amundsen and Roald Nansen?
    Lot of respect for the way its done this last 50 years, its not the usual way...

    1)
    Helge Marcus Ingstad (30 December 1899 in Meråker – 29 March 2001 in Oslo) was a Norwegian explorer. After mapping some Norse settlements, Ingstad and his wife Anne Stine, an archaeologist, in 1960 found remnants of a Viking settlement in L'Anse aux Meadows in the Province of Newfoundland in Canada. With that they were the first to prove conclusively that the Greenlandic Norsemen had found a way across the Atlantic Ocean to North America, roughly 500 years before Christopher Columbus and John Cabot. He also thought that the mysterious disappearance of the Greenland Viking settlement in the 14/15th century could be explained by their emigration to North America.

    This should be a intresting part for those of you that actually live in wild Canada or anywhere else that like the story..Its translated with text on tube.

    The North West Passage (just for fun..and only broadcasted on norwegian TV) But with norwegian Jarle Andøy and rest of Nor crew. Probably you still could see it on wildvikings.com

    And this is what we pour our (once upun a time explorers and seafarers) very "few" dollars into the last 50 years to defend our great south and north America from the "scary Russia" in the strategic northern sea. Hurray!!!

    I wonder if they worried about swine flu and the non-existent Canadian hurricanes???



    When are you planning to come to cycle in Canada, and where will you be riding? I suspect you might be a bit surprised when you get to Canada. There isn't nearly as much "wild Canada" as there was when the vikings came over ... it's a populated country now.

    Just ride a 100 miles North of the Canadian border and you will see where the other 20% of the Canadian population lives. They like to huddle as close as they can to better weather

    Newfoundland.


    And it is hard to get hammer nutrition products in Canada. You might find Hammergel and HEED, but at one time SE, and possibly Perpetuem, were illegal ... banned substances. That's why I'm a big fan of "real food" on tours and other long rides.

    I like the gels... like the bibs and jerseys. Pretty much the only stuff I get. When I'm on the roadie I look like a sponsored rider or a Fred
