Eric is away with the kids for three days, visiting his father. I spent the first two days on my own just relaxing, reading and doing stuff around the house. Today I realized it was the last day of my vacation and on my own so it was an excellent opportunity to go out cycling.

Based on a suggestion in a book about cycle outings, I cycled along the northern edge of lake Mälaren, from Alvik to Kanaan. I am not sure if I would recommend it for other cyclists unless they are on mountain bikes. The route was picturesque, true. But many sections of the path were either too steep or too uneven (or both) for normal bikes so I had to get off and walk.
