    We might just do that. Looks like a great route.

    Hi guys.

    HP and I are planning the next summer trip and UK is on the agenda. Had a brief look at bikepacking.com, but other than that all we know is that it's happening in July and I'm guessing we're spending around 10 days. Airports that work well to fly in and out off are London, Manchester and Edinburgh, but adding a train ride could also be done if starting of finishing further north or south is essential.

    We realize we can't avoid rain, but we wouldn't mind less headwind than last year. Any tips to a route and places to visit would be cool.

    Scored a cheap second hand XX1 11sp groupset. Never felt the need for 12 gears and the GX 10-50t boat anchor bothered me. So now it weighs in at 11,3 kg as pictured. I will try to take some proper pictures soon.

    Came back a few days ago. We had a great week, albeit with headwind pretty much every day. Here's a quick report.

    Day 1 - 137 km - Gothenburg to Falkenberg - Highlight was the pizza at Lilla Napoli. Best I ever had.

    Day 2 - 134 km - Falkenberg to Nivå - Tough day with heavy headwind at 30+ degrees.

    Day 3 - 3o km - Nivå to Copenhagen - Rolling down the beach roads to CPH.

    Day 4-5 - 0 km - Copenhagen - Eating and drinking fancy stuff with friends.

    Day 6 - 105 km - Copenhagen to Sjællands Odde/Aarhus - More headwind, dropping temperatures and rain. We caught the ferries though, and made it to Aarhus where we had more fancy food and drinks.

    Day 7 - 172 km - Aarhus to Frederikshavn - Decided to skip the planned camping on Jylland because of bad weather. Big day and the wind wasn't as bad as the rest of the trip so we made it to our final destination and took the boat back to Oslo the morning after.

    If you plan to do something similar, you can find the rides on Strava - https://www.strava.com/athletes/115806#i­nterval?interval=201926

    If I was to do it again, I would definitely do it the other way around.
