On The Road Again…

 Our weekends are becoming pretty healthy (we need them to after eating bollers in the week).  Today we decided to take the bikes along the coast to Sandvika which is where Eliot works.  He wanted to test the route out as he might take the bike to work when the weather is good.  It’s pretty easy to get around – you just follow the Cycle Route 1 which goes along the E18 highway towards Sandvika – the other way takes you to Oslo.

Norway is really geared up for cyclists with paths everywhere – makes it very safe and easy to get around.  We found a lovely beach in Sandvika and a small island called Kalvøyø.

We took the bikes around until we found a lovely secluded spot where we settled for the afternoon.

 This time we took bathing gear and we went swimming in the sea for the first time!  It was actually a lot warmer than expected and totally refreshing after the 8km bike ride.  We did a spot of sunbathing, grabbed an icecream and then cycled the 8km home.  All in all it was a lovely day out.
