We’re ready for my moms first day. She’s really excited. Our plan today is to cycle 55Km from Smolyan to Zlatograd. How will she react to the bulgarian traffic, and how will it be for her to cycle with the trailer?
Finally the day is here, I’m gonna cycle to Smolyan to meet my mother. She’s ready to cycle with me to the sea side of Bulgaria. I just have to climb a few mountains first, I’m climbing my way up to 1700 meters above sea level today.
Will I be able to cycle from Petrich to Dospat in one day? 120Km and close to 3000 meters of climb according to the side «Ride with GPS». I’m hoping for good weather and that my motivation will last all day. Let’s go!
Waking up in the hotel in Macedonia is not bad. I’ve slept well and are ready for a good breakfast. There will be some climbing today as well, but nothing close to what I’ve done the last days. I’m getting ready for Bulgaria and Petrich.
Am i ready for a new day in the mountains? How will my body react after these long days with climbs? Will the weather be as bad as they report? These questions are running through my head, I know at the same time that these mountains are small compared to what I will pass on […]

I’m heading out to the small center to see what I can find. Todays goal is Kyustendil, which is over some mountains and about 120Km from Dragoman […]
The sun is shining and I’m ready for a new day on the bike! I know that there will be climbs almost the whole day. Let’s just hope my body reacts well and that I will have a good day on the road.
I had a nice evening in Negotin. I spent my evening at the restaurant and had a skype conversation with my beautiful Lillian and my family. I’m preparing myself for a day with a small taste of the climbs that will come.
I’m wondering how it will be to start cycling again now? It’s dangerous to give your body an idea of how it is to relax, the idea of a normal life! I’ll see how far I can get today, my body might be tired after such a long travel from Norway as well.
I’ve celebrated my 30th birthday on this trip, now it’s my mothers turn to celebrate her 50th birthday…How much will I have to miss while I’m cycling around in Europe. I have to do something about this! What about a surprise visit? Read a bit more here, but most important, the video will explain it […]
