Day 4 – Gällivare to Kiruna (125 Km)

Total Ascent

Well, that’s Day 5 done. Definitely starting to feel the old ‘500 km tiredness’ starting to kick-in. Was slow and hard going today – that and chilly, waterproof trews and jacket on, which kept the wind off a treat. Not particularly inspiring riding, and was heavily considering a rest day tomorrow – we’ll see!

The last 10 km climb into Kiruna wasn’t that steep, but certainly finished me off for the day.  Still, arrived around 1630, had time for a sauna, dins (featured) and getting some supplies in.

No rain, no punctures, no moose (sadly), kebab and chips. Bosh!
