Cycling Day 76: Trondheim

It’s just before 9.30am and I’ve returned for the final time into the centre of Trondheim. Steven and Anita have been good hosts for the past two nights; I’ve eaten and drunk well, I’ve learnt a little about how the Norwegians live their lives (the good and the not-so-good…), and on a practical level I now have a full set of cleans clothes and all ten pieces of equipment that need charging have indeed been charged. Yes, I did say ‘ten’*. I’ve also hacked off my beard. This took some doing as I only had one disposable razor remaining. I survived the experience unbloodied. Talking of things medical, I have been bitten on my feet of all places, probably in Steven’s garden on Saturday evening so now have, literally, itchy feet.

I haven’t given too much thought to today’s cycle. In a few minutes I’ll return to the point where I arrived on Sunday afternoon just outside the cathedral, the end of the pilgrimage path and the Eurovelo 3. Eurovelo 1 continues via the car ferry to the piece of land just to the north of Trondheim. There’s a passenger ferry nearer the centre of town which is probably a longer trip but the car ferry does require a cycle out of town. Tonight, a return to camping I imagine although I have yet to examine the options. That’s a job to do on the ferry. More later.
