Hi, i miss cycling, and snow:) I used to live in Germany.
I was never a tourer though.
Now I have some addictin to a legal drug for anxiety and trying to go off of it creates horrible withdrawa symptoms. I realized when i am in nature or outdoors I manage these symptoms far better but where I live oudoors means 2 hours bus out of Pireas into a beachline. Which I do, but i thought of going into 'ice' and cycling in sweden in winter. I have experience how it is to cycle on snow/slush and in blizzard for 30 mins at a time when i lived in Germany but of course back then i didnt camp, and at the end f the route I had a warm home waiting for me..
yet I will be there soon (to stockholm) and if i find second hand bicycle i might do it. Is there a route that goes alone train tracks (as it does in Berlin-Magdeburg for example) , i mean can i take a long distance route by train or close to train so that i have the safety of taking a train if i get too tired or injured?
Any advice. Im not happy having elecronics and gear on me, just myself, regular 40 liter backpack, bivvy, sleeping pad, and groundsheet. Im myself quite heavy and untrained past 4 years so I keep my ''gear'' super light. I know this might sound 'crazy' but im not crazy:)
any contructiv advice welcomed, but im not interested if you want to ''advice'' that i do not try this trip.
