We are drawn towards the big adventure. The multi-day trips and exotic remote mountain passes. But the reality is, that most of our riding is done in the few hours between leaving work and punching the clock the next morning. So we decided to tailor an experience that can be packed in between meetings and doing the laundry. The itinerary was simple. Ride out after work. Do a few stops to shop for the basics on the way. Set up camp out in the woods north of Copenhagen. And ride back to work the morning after.

Road to Lake Esrum
We decided to built the route out and back from the Pas Normal Studios Flagship Store and headquarter to include as much time in the woods as possible. Taking us through Hareskoven, Store Dyrehave and Gribskov ending at a shelter on the north shore of Lake Esrum.
On the way to Lake Esrum, we stocked up on essentials for a night in the woods. The menu was ambitious: chilli sin carne and grilled sourdough bread with kale and smoked fresh cheese. Picking a shelter with a good fireplace is especially important.
