The second day also brought us wonderful weather. We took the bikes out again, traveling on the longest road (it’s mostly gravel) in Greenland, which goes from Kangerlussuaq eastward until it hits the icecap. Actually, it keeps going up and onto the ice, where eventually it ends in a super secret test facility for Volkswagen automobiles. Yes, you read that right.

We ditched the bikes and climbed Big Sugarloaf Mountain, which is behind Little Sugarloaf Mountain in this photo. The views were specatcular.
