Day 4: Flugumýrarhvammur - Akureyri (Car) 95 km
It was snowing as I looked out the window this morning. The weather forecast was for sun all day but with the amount of snow on the ground it was looking like a non-bike day. We checked the road updates website and part of the road we needed to cycle on was closed all morning. The farmers wife was driving to Akureyri and recommended that we take a lift with her. She cooked us lunch of lamb and beef sausages before taking us and the bikes through the snowy mountains. Akureyri is Iceland's second biggest city with 10,000 people. We took a walk around before using the sauna in the hostel. There's only one off license in the town that closed at 6. At 5.45 pm there was a line of about 50 or 60 people trying to get into the place. Tomorrow we hope to get some cycling in and will aim for Lake Mývatn.
