was @sweden 2016-11-14 to 2016-11-21

I’m Katja, a rider. I live in the just big enough Swedish town of Västerås and compete in road racing and cyclocross. I also write, shoot beautiful places in the world and let my mind go free when I blog about cycling, love, music and life on my blog cykelkatten.cc.

My passion is the thrilling and liberating art of cycling. For me, riding is more than a sport – it's the beauty of the world under the bike's wheels, it's the technology and it’s all the great people. It’s a true religion.
This week, I will open the door into my world and let you see Sweden from a rider’s view. Ride on!

Motionslopp may seem boring and it actually when you're used to break aways, chases and action BUT - the courses are often beautiful and to

@sweden Nov. 20, 2016, 11:48 a.m.

"Motionslopp" means that people that "don't want to compete" ride a course and get a finish time for example 6.45 or smth.

@sweden Nov. 20, 2016, 11:47 a.m.

So, for sum (commercial?) reason, today we've more "motionslopp" than actual races in Sweden.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 4:05 p.m.

No human being should be afraid to get killed in our shared traffic.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 4:03 p.m.

I'm not a lawyer, nor a psychologist but smth tells me that higher penalties would stop more drivers from chancing and/or messing with 🚴🏾‍♀️

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 3:46 p.m.

Yet the penalties for killing cyclists are low. Often the killings are called accidents even if the driver intentionally runs over a rider.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 3:44 p.m.

Back to reality. Each year, thousands of cyclists get hurt (and lots die) cause of drivers attitudes and bad infrastructure.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 11:25 a.m.

@dc7ia Where do teams train?

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 11:04 a.m.

There's no GROUP called "cyclists". There are people to ride bikes, as there are people who drive cars, or ride electric wheelchairs, or go.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 11:03 a.m.

@dc7ia Are you sure? Everywhere?

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 10:52 a.m.

But for some reasons, it's called "cyclists" like some homogeneous group where all are the same and move in the same way.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 10:51 a.m.

Well cyclists are not angels. Cyclists are like people are most - DIFFERENT from each other.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 10:50 a.m.

@ThegoodBuck That doesn't sound good at all! If you know which club it is, write to the management so they speak to their cyclists.

@sweden Nov. 18, 2016, 10:46 a.m.

Here in Sweden, most people are rather calm outside their cars. When in car something happens. Some kind of suppressed aggression light? ;)

Sum folks think cycling is a hobby. It's not. Working is a hobby. Relationships is a hobby. Buying stuff other than spare parts is a hobby 👿

@frank_close it's called "snow chaos". We also have autumn leaf chaos. It's when the leaves suddenly fall and it gets slippery. I'm serious.
