The Finish Line! I arrive in Copenhagen, completing a 500 mile ride from Stockholm in 6 days. This was an amazing day, completing an amazing trip. I share my perspectives on ending the journey.
By Day 5 of my ride I was started to feel like I had everything figured out. I knew how to pack my bag, how to keep my phone charged, and I only had 60 miles to get from Halmstad to Helsingborg as part of my 500 mile journey from Stockholm to Copenhagen.
On Day 4 of my 500 mile bike ride from Stockholm to Copenhagen I covered 90 miles. I also began to settle into a groove. What I was doing suddenly felt normal.
On Day 3 of my ride my relationship with Myla (the name given to my Google Maps navigation voice) started to break down. With all the margin I had bought for myself with a 130 Mile Day 2, I was happily rolling with the punches.
Chronicling my 500 mile bike ride from Stockholm to Copenhagen. On Day 2 I felt like I took ownership of my ride and covered 130 miles.
Looking back, Day One of my ride was by far the hardest. I went to bed that night fearing I had taken on something bigger and more daunting than I’d expected.
