Iceland is for Brave Bicyclists

This is a super-highway in Iceland:

There is no shoulder. Sometimes, ther is no pavement. Here is a bicyclist, bravely peddling and wearing a helmet even:

I suspect that these bikes are part of a tour. Note the kickstands on mountain bikes.

Truth be told, I’ve been driving a Suzuki mini 4×4. Iceland is full of mountains and glaciers and, in the summer, rain. Not ideal bicycling, but people still do it. I’ve been giving them lots of space. Here’s a bicyclist who is likely freezing. She’s not so cold that she wants to wear her helmet, however.

More road. Lots of road before sunny Seattle.

It’s an amazing place, Iceland. Complete with icebergs.
