The Sabbatical 2021 is our big time-off from the job and should be our first tour longer than 3 weeks in a row just on the bikes and most of the time in our tent. We want to go around Europe for about 6 months. Read more about the motivation and our plans here.
First stop Sweden
We started our Sabbatical Tour at the 8th of April in Skanör at the south west of Sweden. We cycled along the west coast and passed the major cities Malmö, Helsingborg and Gotheborg till we came close to the Norwegian border. Than we cycled east wise and passed lake Vänern, Vättern and followed the coast of lake Mälaren to Stockholm. From Nynäshamn we took a ferry to Poland and continued our tour there.
Max elevation: 184 m
Min elevation: -18 m
Total climbing: 10367 m
Total descent: -10375 m
Here are some impressions of our first seven stages where we followed the Sydkustleden and the Kattegattleden along the west coast through Malmö, Helsingborg, Halmstad, Falkenberg and various other cities to Göteborg.
On June 1st we took a ferry from Nynäshamn to Gdańsk to continue our tour in Eastern Europe. This makes Poland the second country that we will pass through.
