The Sweden Squad - Rob, Doug, Darren and Line... on the first night of a self-supported bike tour across northeastern Sweden.

This map shows the total number of days I've spent traveling in each European country. The only major countries in Europe I haven't been to yet are Belarus, Cyprus and Russia. Hopefully I'll get to those three places soon.

What is up with Sweden's obsession with old cars? How did owning an classic car become a part of the Swedish zeitgeist? Any ideas? I'm not complaining. I think it's cool. But I seriously wonder how this got started. #umeåsweden #umea #umeå #sweden #classiccars #classiccar

One of the many great things about bicycle touring with Line @linegammelli on our recently completed bike tour across northern Sweden was that she was able to communicate with some of the locals in Swedish and then translate their message to the rest of the group. It was great having her along! #bicycling #bicycletouring #biketour #biketouring #adventurecycling #sweden #swedishgirl #swedenbiketour #linegammelli #scandinavia #umeåsweden #umeå #skellefteå #luleå #piteå #translator

I've spent almost the entire summer in and around the city of Umea, Sweden. The place feels like home now and I've made so many great friends here. Sadly, today is my last day in the city. Tomorrow morning I head to the airport and fly back to California. It's time to start preparing for my next big adventure.

I've only got 1 more day left here in Umeå, Sweden before I fly back to the United States 😭 I'm going to miss this place and all the friends I have made here.

Today I met with Bicycle Touring Pro readers Ronnie and Roland in Umeå, Sweden and showed them my new Co-Motion Cycles Siskiyou touring bicycle and its unique Pinion gearbox and Gates Carbon Drive: http://bicycletouringpro.com/pinion-gearbox-gates-carbon-drive-system/ I think they were impressed! :) @carbondrive @co_motionbikes @visitumea #umeå #sweden #touringbike #touringbicycle #siskiyou

This is my friend Rob @noiseismylife on the first day of our recently completed bike tour across northern Sweden. Rob and I have done 5 different bike tours together in 5 different countries (Switzerland, France, Finland, Norway and Sweden).

This is Line @linegammelli and Doug @ridemyredbike on the first day of our 300 km bike tour across northern Sweden - just moments before we left the city of #umeå and began cycling north. Look at those smiles!!!
