Kattegattleden 2021 on inlines

Kattegattleden is a 390 km long bike path along the coast from Helsingborg to Gothenburg.

Friday 6 August 2021 I rolled the Kattegattleden, trail section Falkenberg – Varberg on inlines together with my sister and her friend Lena, who traveled on electric bikes.

Last summer I did the marked track and found the part on the old E6 challenging with quite a bit of high speed traffic with little or no respect for inliners (or bikers) and rather ruff asphalt.

This year I found out about Fyrleden, a detour that runs along the beach between Olofsbo and Glommen, very nice and beautiful views.

The other detour was to avoid the old E6. In Morup we crossed the old E6 and took the road to Tvååker. Much better asphalt and very little traffic and the few cars passing us took it nice and easy.

A very nice bike path started just outside Tvååker towards Träslövsläge. We had tailwind all the way to the coast :-).

After approx. 48 km we arrived to Varberg where we had after skate at Rolands Kök & Bar.

Respect to sister and friend who biked back home to Falkenberg, with face wind and some rain.
I took the train…

Berlin Inline Marathon 2019

Thursday: Transport – check in at hostel – drink at the local bar, same procedure as every year 😉

Friday: Rain!! Expo – Craft beer and board game at The Muted Horn. Dinner at Block House.

Saturday: This year we tried the concept, Gladpack. All the participants in the pack should start and finish with the same time. We didn’t decide what time. We should start and finish all at a line next to each other (spontaneously, we did the same trick at the ½ marathon) . Everybody was rolling together as one group, helping each other – “GAP!!! – CONTACT!!!. We ended up being 9 participants and we all started in group “F”. 
While waiting for the start, it started to pour down!!! The start was postponed 10 minutes. 
The streets was VERY slippery. We managed to finish as planned and even picked up some other MCS members on the way. Personally, I enjoyed the race, even if the weather conditions was bad and I had promised myself never roll to this race when wet roads! It was a great Gladpack that did very well and thanks to everybody to make it great!

Saturday dinner at Glashaus. After skate party at Kosmos.

Sunday: Very nice lunch at Knofi

Sweden 12H Roller

Augusti 17 I was team leader in one of Malmö City Skaters’ two teams that participated in Sweden 12H Roller at Falkenberg’s motor race track. It’s a rollerskate/inline relay race with 6 members in each team. The start is at 8:00 and finish at 20:00. Each team member roll one lap, approx. 1,8 km. The team with most laps wins.  One of Malmö City Skaters teams came third (the one I wasn’t team leader for ;-), congrats, well done.

It rained for the first 2 hours and then the sun came and dried the track. A fantastic day with great team spirit. It was really fun to be in the same race as the “pros” instead of being a spectator.
