Roads I Would Like to Ride – Atlanterhavsveien

I was trawling around YouTube the other night and somehow stumbled across a piece of road that made me think “This would make an interesting series for the blog”.

There wont be a strict structure to these posts, and I would love suggestions if you have them. These are just roads that looking interesting or exciting or scenic.

I will steer away from the more traditional rides that are already on peoples bucket lists. There may only be 3 or 4 posts in total, but lets kick it off with the Atlanterhavsveien (Norwegian for Atlantic Road).

This from the Wikipedia entry…

The Atlantic Ocean Road or the Atlantic Road (Norwegian: Atlanterhavsveien) is a 8.3-kilometer (5.2 mi) long section of County Road 64 which runs through an archipelago in Eide and Averøy in Møre og Romsdal, Norway. The fixed link passes by Hustadvika, an unsheltered part of the Norwegian Sea, connecting the island of Averøy with the mainland and Romsdalshalvøya peninsula. The road runs between the villages of Kårvåg on Averøy and Vevang in Eida. The road is built on several small islands and skerries, which are connected by several causeways, viaducts and eight bridges—the most prominent being Storseisundet Bridge.

This is the video I happened upon. If given the choice, I would rather ride it in calmer conditions. 🙂

Now send me some suggestions so I can add them to my cycling bucket list.

    Hi!

    I live only a few km away from this very famous road and I can tell you that the entire area is made for cycling not only “The Atlantic Road” but the surrounding roads are beautifull as well.
