Day 12: Vegamót - Ólafsvík
Time: 5:42:33
Distance: 104.34 km
Average Speed 18.2 km/h

We set off in sunshine today stopping off for breakfast after about 5km. At our next stop about 57km in we ate some terrible hamburgers and met 2 Irish girls driving a car around for 5 days. A lot of today's cycle was through lava fields with snowy mountains a constant part of the scenery. We spent a long time passing the Snæfellsjökull glacier. Ryan had his first flat in Hellissandur just a short bit away from a petrol station. We got a coffee in there to warm up our hands before making the fix. Another 10km after we reached our destination Ólafsvík which has a campsite just outside the town. We got pizza in the only place in town that looked open (a petrol station) watching the end of the Bayern - Real Madrid game.
