EXPEDITION - Postrutten


EXPEDITION

Postrutten
Bergen to Trondheim – Norway
2015

Outline:
The first person ever to travel 1000 km by mountainbike and kayak in the footsteps of the postmen carrying

messages along Den Trondhjemske Postvei.

Some years ago I heard about an old post route between Bergen and Trondheim that hadn’t been in use since 1868. As part of Tierra Adventure Academy I decided to bring this route to live.

My purpose of the expedition was to challenge myself, but also to inspire.

Inspire friends, colleagues and professionals to open the door and leave their computer at home for a while. Inspire them to take their first step towards a healthier lifestyle.

Instead of doing as the original postmen did, using horses and rowing boats, I chose to use mountainbike for the first 800km and kayak for the final 200 km.

The challenge was to find the original route off the beaten track, prepare physically and mentally, calculate the risks and safely manage to go the whole distance in 14 days and 14 nights.

Several major sponsors helped me with gears and workout plans.

July 18th 2015, after 6 months of preparations, I set off on a historical journey through open sea, fjords and windy mountain passes.

August 1st 2015, a bearded and bruised man entered Trondheim in his kayak. With him he had a letter.
