Cycle Iceland

On Saturday, Sept 12 I will fly Icelandic Air to Reykjavik.  In the following three weeks I will attempt to cycle the Ring Road, Hwy # 1.   This is a bit late to cycle Iceland, but I guess that will be part of the challenge for me.  The 1400 km road is primarily paved with some mountain areas and a lot of coastal riding.  Very likely my route will vary somewhat from the rough plan.  I will go prepared to camp when necessary, but I do hope to find places to stay out of the elements.  

Along with the cycling challenge, of prime interest for me on this trip to Iceland will be experiencing the people and some of their history and culture.  The Icelandic Sagas are particularly interesting, revealing and gory.  I hope to embrace some of the Sagas and what they mean today, although I hope I do not get embroiled in a blood feud.   The photographic opportunities of this severe country are also enticing and so if the weather allows I will certainly be trying
I hope to make the odd post during this trip.
All for now.
