Road to Vatternrundan: Any takers/completers?

by gandberg   April 28, 2009  

My brother's folks in law live in a town on the route of the above ride. For those of you who know, have you done the ride? For those who don't it is a 300km (yes) day long ride around a lake in Sweden, with up to 18,000 participants per year. I'm tempted to have a go.

Not this June, but 2010. Something to aim towards and all that.

Some people have completed the ride 40 times. Dedication indeed!

Look forward to hearing from any of you, if you've done it...

Paid for by road cc?! I'm in, can even be a manager Smile Its the plaid jersey or Rock Racings' flag of the Union shirt:

Read a septics blog about it, he said it was harder than an ironman triathlon. 12 hours in the saddle averaing 15kph. 3 hours of breaks. 200 miles though, like riding from mine to my brothers in Ivybridge in a day. Feels like it takes a day in the car when the M5 is busy!
