We've signed up for the Vätternrundan
in Sweden next year. Last did it in 2000, so it'll be 20 years.
300km in a day. That'll be fun! (Actually, it's a great event).
4 of us going at the moment if anyone else would like to join us?
Would be good to join in - logisitics?
Well, we're doing what we did last time - taking the Wednesday overnight DFDS ferry from Harwich to Esbjerg in Denmark, then driving to Helsingborg in Sweden and spending Thursday night there in a youth hostel or similar.
On the Friday, drive up to Motola where we'll have hired an Airbnb log cabin. Rest up and eat pasta, before cycling to the start at about 1AM (or whatever start time we eventually get). Do the ride (with 25,000 other people), then back to the chalet. Early Sunday drive all the way back to Esbjerg and get the overnight ferry back or stay on a bit and get the Monday night ferry back.
We're taking a Volvo estate with 5 people, so can't take any more. Our two sons and a friend of theirs will probably go considerably faster than us - we just have to finish before midnight Saturday...
The ferry is really nice with great food and decent cabins. Good to relax.
