Norwegian road cycling magazine Landevei made this nice little video from their exploration of the world heritage area Geiranger in Norway. Not Rapha slick, though. Essence of the commentary is that even if there are great destinations down south like the Alps, the Riviera and the German wine districts we should't forget what we have in our own back yard, and that there is a reason why buses and cruise ships bring thousands of tourists to our little country every year.

I cannot embed it seems, so: http://vimeo.com/61297821

Glad you like it. Embarrasingly enough I've never been to Geiranger myself. Here's their web site: http://www.geiranger.no/index.php/en.html

I really like the atmosphere and quiet roads of Norway. You just must take part of http://www.vikingtour.no end of July! I have done it twice and will do it again. Unfortunately not this year...

Yeah, those folks at Landevei were early adopters.

OMG!! If Rapha makes a contest for videos you could submit this one.

I like it a lot. It makes me wanna puke. Very good. I wonder how it would be a Michael Hanneke or David Lynch kinda cycling video, instead of a Rapha thing. Maybe Prendrefeu could do a remake of Mullholand drive by cyclists...

We rode (and ran) the Dalsnibba Duathlon, then the next day we rode the Eagles Path, and then Trollstigen.

Truly a very beautiful place, we'll be going back next year to do the duathlon a bit more seriously this time.
