Linn is an experienced blogger and will be helping out Jostein to promote more great cycling information in Norway. Time then to read all about our new writer...

Linn Royne - Norway, MTB XC 

I'm a 30 year old woman who lives just outside Oslo, with Nordmarka as my nearest neighbour. I am so priviliged to have great trail just outside my doorstep, and my apartment is practically in the skislope. A perfect base for a person that set a great value to everything nature has to offer.

In Norway we have 4 seasons, and they can be extreme. Of course I prefer summer and dry paths, but each season definitely has its own charm! I love the freedom and all the beautiful and unspoilt places the mountain bike takes me. In the future I'll share my bike experiences here on Pedal North with you. I'll also post images and GPX files for great routes all over our amazing country - Norway. 

I'm also a distinctly competitive person and love the competition aspect around cycling. I like to push my body and limits, and really learned to value good workouts. Its so important to me! This year I'm going to ride the Norwegian Cup XC and selected marathon races with a lot of trails. I look forward to competing again and hope that 2017 become a good season. 

I'm also an ambassador for Velo City Specialized, the only Specialized concept store in Norway. Its located in Oslo.
