We spent Saturday with our new partner Multi Event Sweden, on their home turf in the picturesque coastal village of Hälleviksstrand on the island of Orust. Orust is the largest island in Bohuslän's archipelago and in addition to it's first class marina it also offers miles of impressive mountain biking along the Kuststigen (The Coastal Trail) which cuts right through the island. 

We started the day by riding parts of Kuststigen under a picture perfect blue sky. The part we rode was a combination of easy and intermediate trails through fairly hilly terrain. We were happy to see that it was a varied and somewhat technical trail, making it suitable for both beginners and more experienced mountain bikers. 

After the ride and lunch we headed for Hällevik Yacht Club where Multi Event keeps their sea kayaks. We paddled our way through the crystal clear Skagerrak to the island of Svartskär. When we arrived we finally got to enjoy our well deserved coffee and fresh baked buns. We spent the rest of the afternoon on Svartskär and when the sun began to paint the archipelago in warm nuances, we paddled our way back to Multi Event's headquarters to enjoy grilled mackerel in the sunset.  

It's going to be enormous fun to lead guided MTB tours together with Multi Event on Orust. Trail riding and ocean life is a winning combination.
