EPIC GREENLAND ON MOUNTAIN BIKE!

EPIC GREENLAND ON MOUNTAIN BIKE!


After landing it’s time to unpack our bikes I hope the bikes have survived the flight So we started building the bikes with Tobi There is the airport where we landed today Here we are staying tonight and we will go this direction tomorrow morning What do I do here in Greenland? My teammate Tobi from Ghost set up this trip that it would be great riding Arctic Circle trail which means we’re going tomorrow from Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut Weather forecasts do not look good so far Our guides said there is snow on the trail. Let’s see how it goes. What we know is that it will be cold. The first day of the trip Our guides are packing our stuff. It looks like we will change bikes with snowmobiles because there is a lot of snow on the trail Today’s plan is 60 km before we get into the first cabin As I have advised there is a lot of snow and some parts must be overtaken on snowmobiles Otherwise the cold is about -20 and it’s not easy at all This day is done, it was not ideal because it is a lot of snow We did some parts of the trail on snowmobiles and is really cold when you riding on snowmobiles at -20 Some parts were riding on bikes but the smaller part, We hope that we will ride more tomorrow It’s about 9 am still a bit dark It’s snowing a bit Let’s see how it looks. I hope it will not be as cold as yesterday. Last night the temperature was about -30. The cabin was warm but it was very cold outside. The bike is doing well so far but a bit frozen. We need to get there to the lake where our snowmobiles are waiting. We walk time to time but otherwise it’s so beautiful here. Mountain bike conditions are not ideal again, we alternate with snowmobiles The trail is not rideable in this area so far just too much snow right here We try to ride bicycle every minute to get warm a bit The hunters left here some skin and bones leftovers There are our guides. They had to go in two to lead our bikes and stuff uphill. because we continue over the hill. It’s been a while since no one has returned. I hope they will come because it’s really cold. We arrived at the second cabin where we will sleep tonight I’m a bit chilly because we spent the last 10km on snowmobiles Our guides went really fast. Fast means cold on snowmobiles. I’m already looking forward to warm cabin and dinner. We just wake up, it’s about 8am and I’ll show you how cabin looks These cabins are about four or five on the trail and who needs he can stop and sleep here. When it’s heated is about luxury 15 degree inside Tonight’s temperature outside was around -30 and do not want to camp ouside! There is no electricity, so we use the headlights in the morning A breakfast is getting ready in the next room. As you can hear this morning blows a lot. Thankfully, we are going in this direction so we’ll have the wind in the back Today there is no plan set yet Either we go 50 km to the Sisimiut or when it’s too dark we’ll sleep in the cabin about 20km before Sisimiut The bikes stayed outside tonight. They are a bit frozen but all good so far. Today we have some trouble. We got stuck with a snowmobiles few times but everything ok, they brought me up with the first sleds up here and they will come with the other sleds in a while The original plan was to stay in the cabin on the edge of the lake but we decided to get to the city today I hope I will not have to wait here in the dark Great, they’re already going Unbelievable, we arrived to Sisimiut and today we will sleep here! Last night we only had dinner and went straight to bed. we were really tired We finally spent 3 days on the trail. Overall it was about 160 km As you could see the conditions were not ideal so we had to use snowmobiles time to time but we have unreal experiences and the landscape is simply unbelievable Simply beautiful!
