Biking has really exploded this year, so much so that bike manufacturers are backlogged! This is one of the good things that has come from the pandemic and travel bans: People have had to explore other ways to enjoy summer in their own home and in more solitary, social distance-safe ways. I rarely travel abroad in the summer though, as Sweden is the perfect place to enjoy a staycation. We have the freedom to roam, amazing nature, cozy towns and lovely lakes being nearby basically regardless of where in the country we live.
So this summer me, Dan and our friend Kim decided to try bikepacking for the first time and we went for a weekend trip to a nearby river we’ve been to before. It’s a lovely place to camp at and not too far away from Sundsvall so it was a good first bikepacking trip. We enjoyed the country side views on the way there and stopped for snacks at a small lake (almost went for a swim) before reaching our destination.
