Borgarfjörður eystri is an interesting place to mountain bike right now. There are no official mountain biking trails (we’re trying to change that) so most of our riding experience here now is centered on riding access roads, old national trails and unsanctioned hiking trails. Now, we don’t directly support riding on busy hiking trails, but beggars can’t be choosers and the trails that we’ve found here that are at all rideable aren’t busy. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find another person that is even on the same mountain. During a particularly cloudy day in July, my wife and I decided to explore the mountain road that leads into the deserted inlet of Breiðavík. Getting to Breiðavík on a bike was an interesting challenge, as I had only ever gone there by car.
