A kicksled can get you far!


The circumstances are not always favourable for Nordic skating. For example, it has been too warm on last couple of nights and the ice surface has not get frozen enought for skating. However, one or two degrees below zero can be enough for a kicksled.

Today we did a nice 51km kicksled tour from Kuru to Tampere on Lake Näsijärvi. I shot a GoPro Timewarp video of the trip in order to capture the changing cirmumstances. Of course, the video clips taken on dark were terrible, but as the journey lasted for six hours, there were also good lighting conditions later in the morning.
