The first gravel I rode on, I was a bit nervous but everything turned out fine. I even worked up the confidence to take my rig to 52 km\h on a steep downhill, at the bottom of the hill I hit a huge pot-hole, after that I wasn't afraid of anything... Also on that day I attempted pumping up my rear tire only to find that my pump was broken in the process I snapped the valve off the tube letting all the air out. It took 1.5hrs to hitch a ride to Husavik (20km), the only portion of the trip I didn't cycle.
