The Rad Race Crew have been dreaming of cycling around Iceland for many years, and now that dream has become a reality. The guys of the Rad Pack are now on their way round a loop of Iceland, and with them are no less than 8 of our gravel and CX bikes.
Their “Tour d’Iceland” is a kind of farewell ride that the crew is doing for their beloved friend and member Sebastian (Aurora) who died in an accident some weeks ago. Sebastian and the other Rad Pack members started planning this journey shortly after their “Tour de Scandinavia”. After their TdS experience it was pretty clear for them that this kind of cycling adventure was going to be addictive, and it was time for another fix.
As Iceland brings with it a lot of challenges, these are best illustrated with photos, as there are simply not enough words to transmit this cold and hostile environment. In the images you can almost feel the freezing temperatures, see the steep mountains to be climbed, and the rough gravel to be negotiated, but above all its the breathtaking landscapes that will be most remembered and inspire us to one day take a journey there ourselves.
