Prelude to Pain

As we flew into Keflavik airport at 1am, 50km out of Reykjavik a little worse for wear, we realised we were somewhere unique, the sun was already rising, the landscape completely devoid of trees. After some long waits, we collected 2 out of 3 bikes from the airport, Benedict's needing collection the next day from the cargo bay. Luckily, our friend Phil who resides in Reykjavic provided us with a comfortable sanctuary prior to setting out on our trip. Our first day in the country was a bank holiday with great weather, allowing us to stock up and explore the town of Reykjavic.

Intense training awaiting our flight to Iceland
