Following the popularity of the cycle touring Hebrides round up, below is a collection of posts on my trip and thoughts some of the equipment I used.
My itinerary was intentionally loose, the only real plan to cycle one of the gravel roads across the barren interior. I chose the more straightforward Kjolur, which offered some truly incredible cycle touring. The gravel roads are indeed a challenge and tested me both mentally and physically, but the experience was hugely rewarding.
The terrain will readily expose any weaknesses in your gear, as will the weather. I had relatively benign conditions during my trip, save for the last few days when Iceland’s weather bit back. It’s important to account for these conditions in your itinerary and have a bail out… Iceland’s buses normally coming to the rescue.
