charity bike ride
I am in the process of organising a charity ride for “fishing for heroes” which is a charity I have previously raise funds for, by doing the coast to coast walk raising some £1000. I am now looking to do a loop around northern Europe riding across Denmark the Baltic and onto Sweden heading north into Finland and onto Nordcapp the north most part of Europe above the artic circle and then down the west coast of Norway then back across Sweden and over to my ferry back in Denmark.
I am looking for any information on the road conditions and camp site etc. in Sweden and Finland going north , for instance does anyone know if it its legal to free camp. Any information would be gratefully received so I can plan my daily mileage etc. I plan on camping for the adventure and to keep cost to a minimum as the trip is funded by myself so all the monies raised can be used by the charity.
Fishing for heroes is a charity that helps veterans with mental health problems rather that physical one, each candidate is taught to fly fish and whilst doing so they receive rehab/counselling. Physical injuries are easily seen by other but mental problems often go hidden for years. I am hoping to raise enough funds to put (quite) a few veterans through a course, for further information on fishing for heroes please see www.fishingforheroes.net
many thanks John (Spud) Murphy
Have a great one

I can tell that camping is allowed anywhere you want in Sweden and Norway! they have what we call "alle mans ret"
It means that you can camp where you want. as long as you dont disturb anyone! if you camp near a house you should ask for permission.
here is some more about that:
So dont worry about that!
in Denmark you can only camp if you permission no matter where you are. But there is several nice ADV riders here in denmark that I know will let you stay for a night or two. No problem.
Let me know if you need any help or a place to stay here in Denmark.

I live in Sweden (give me a shout when you come through so I get to ride with u a bit ;) ). And camping here is absolutely free, as long as you respect nature (don't destroy it), keep away from private property. Otherwise you can pitch a tent pretty much everywhere for 24 hours.
Great idea by the way! Sounds like a terrific way to get better!!
Good luck friend!
