Journey rider and longtime YouTuber Lyndon Poskitt is again on his Husqvarna Norden 901.Within the latest collection of Races to Locations, he’s off to discover Iceland. First issues first, although—each he and his bike must get there from England. Sadly, most airways frown upon taking your bike of selection within the cabin with you as an emotional help car. Boo!
On this video, we briefly see Poskitt pack up the bike to go on its separate journey throughout the water, after which we see him get on a airplane (Iceland Air, in fact), solely to be greeted by a pleasant native rider named Einar. To get acclimated, he suggests taking a few bikes out to discover some native trails, and who’s going to say no to that?
As an individual who’s by no means ridden in Iceland, and who’s watching this, the very first thing that struck me is the sheer vastness of the locations that they’re driving. It’s wild, it’s filled with issues that look just a bit totally different than what it’s possible you’ll be used to—all these black rocks, for instance—and it’s, in fact, extraordinarily lovely.
Later within the video, we get a little bit of a map overview of the place Poskitt plans to journey throughout his time within the nation. Some areas wouldn’t be open but because of the time of yr, so the plan for the primary couple of weeks was to stay to fjord areas within the west that ought to be open. He’s ranging from Reykjavik, however plans to discover far past on the Norden over the approaching weeks.
As soon as Poskitt is reunited with Norman the Norden (significantly, that’s what he’s named his bike, and truthfully it does form of circulation off the tongue), it’s off for his or her first day of journey. After getting out of the town and off onto some dust roads, it’s time for a fast map examine to see that the subsequent vacation spot is Gullfoss Falls, a fully large two-tier waterfall within the southern a part of the nation. Through the winter, Poskitt says, the water freezes and glistens spectacularly within the daylight, which entails considerably much less falling of the water.
After that, it’s time to start out heading north—and it’s additionally the tip of this episode. Within the preview for the subsequent episode, we see that poor outdated Norman is on his aspect within the snow—what’s occurred? It’s referred to as a teaser for a cause, and Poskitt is clearly hoping you’ll subscribe to seek out out (that’s, for those who haven’t already).
