... a breath of fresh air, the sweat is running down your face, the valley floor is laying for your feet, green, lush and welcoming. The last crest is climbed, as you reach for some refreshening water you know that the coming hour will be downhill.To travel by bike is to travel with nature, smell the spring flowers, taste the sea-breeze and feel the sun on your hands. Sometimes wipe the rain off your face, and always whether wet or cold, warm, hot or burning, tickle your senses and just be alive.

Björn is a very positive guy, never gets really upset when cycling, except for when it is raining. His foremost strength is the will to never give up, not to forget his ability to sleep everywhere - even when it is well below zero. The more tired he is the harder he will ride. His favorite food on the road: pasta with a raw egg.
