Took the bike on a one-day-trip yesterday, from Porsgrunn to Lysebotn and back in Norway. About 700km of wonderful roads! Never get sick of riding in Norway :D

 Just Google mapped a look at that tunnel at the Lysebotn end, it  looks interesting? I have just got back from the Alps and been through a few rock tunnels in passes, but not quite like that one.

Ĺh...Lysebotn...one VERY fine road down/up. And the tunnel is turning quit a bit, and is wet and slippery. Been there twice ::012::
And also road 520 from Hĺre to Sauda in Norway, one of the best road I have ever ridden. Done this road four times :))

Very much enjoyed Lysebotn 4 years ago.



The Norwegians were so nice that they even made a sign of me at Trollstigen.

Trail Ridge Road today. Lot of traffic, 232 miles in 5.5 hours. Probably the longest non stop ride I've ever done, 5.5hrs without stopping other than traffic jams. For those that lust for Colorado, 2 mile line to enter trail ridge road today to pay the $20.00 fee out of Estes Park.

A nice Saturday afternoon - 177miles, 4hr - ride up to North Georgia to 'capture' a bonus for the Grand Tour of Georgia





I've got everything North of I-20 on the GTGA.  Waiting to cool off before I work on the stuff down south

Today, I made a little lunch ride to TWoS today.  First time on the bike in over a month.  A cruise with the wife and Canoeing in Canada with my son and the scouts got I the way.  It fealt good to get out on 2 wheels
