    This is why you want to go biking in Fjord-Norway As you may have noticed while visiting my social media channels, I was biking in Norway over the past week. I was invited on this trip by Innovation Norway and I accepted the invite without hesitation. Interest in biking in Norway is increasing and becoming more and more popular.
