Who are we?

Hi, I am Bengt (swedish name, german born and living in Spain) and I have been riding bikes since my late 20s and started touring on them a few years later. More recently I got into hiking and scrambling around in the mountains.

Whether its on road, gravel paths, or in the high mountains, just one day or weeks on end, with friends or alone - the idea always is to get out there and make memories.

Special thanks to Torben, with whom I can came up with the idea for Grime.cc during our gravel bike trip through Sweden a few years ago!

Another thanks goes out to Jost for tirelessly spotting my errors in every new post.

What is this?

On this site I (Bengt) talk about my outdoorsy type trips on bikes and on foot. Often I travel with friends and other times solo.

Why are we doing this?

After watching countless perfectly produced Youtube videos of people crossing the Andes (almost losing all their toes) or kayaking the coast of Alaska (and being chased by bears) and being pretty intimidated by the scale, danger and “epicness” of other peoples adventures we decided that showing that getting outside, making memories and having your own adventure is doable for anybody.

So I started to write down the achievable adventures we had in the last few years and will continue to do so for the stuff that is coming up.

Also we are a forgetful bunch and needed a place to describe our trips to help us remember...
