My room last night was grey with grey curtains, on opening those curtains this morning I was met with a monochrome grey sky.
But it was not raining so on with the gear, load up the bike and head to the Atlantic Way Bridges
Weirdly I attracted a little audience who wanted to hear about my trip and I spent a good hour showing pics and talking to various couples, travellers and locals. As I set off it started to rain so I was again stopped to put on the full wet gear.
A short wet ride brought me to Molde and a McDonalds. I was due some food so that was perfect. Fed and watered it was a very short hop to the ferry that took me to Vestnes.
It was then a 60km run to Trollstigen (Trolls ladder). A well known road that ascends the side of a huge mountain, its switchbacks are really tight and the drop off the side perilous.
At the top is a visitor centre with a walkway to see the views but you simply couldn’t see them. I had a walk and tried to take some pics but it didn’t really do it justice.
As I left I was following a motorhome and visibility dropped to 5 metres. I could barely see the kerbs on both sides. The motorhome let me past, I wasn’t sure I wanted to lead. After some 3km the road started to drop out of the cloud and it was a clearer run. 30km later I found a campsite. That’s close enough to go back if the weather is better tomorrow and not an issue if it isn’t as Geiranger Fjord is not far away.
