Today, RÚV English looks into cycling 1000km around the Westfjords...

The Arna Westfjords Way Challenge follows the Westfjords Way ? a bikepacking route established with the help of the Westfjords Tourism office and scouting team Chris Burkard, Lael Wilcox, Rue Kaladyte, Payson McElveen, and Nichole Baker. It totals 954 km [593 mi] and each stage ranges from 211 to 255 km [131 to 158 mi].

It doesn't sound like it is for the faint hearted, but Darren's guest today completed it last year and will again in a few weeks. Stephen Shelesky tells Darren about the training, the sense of achievement, and a love of Iceland that has pulled him back to complete the challenge again.
