In the forest south of Mungasjön, near Västerås, Sweden.

the ru[edit]

I routinely bike in this area so I was already familiar with the route.

I cycled from Västerås, north through Hökåsen, then zigzaging along small roads to avoid traffic. I planned to approach the hashpoint on a dirt road from the south but ran into a "vehicles prohibited" sign. I still had a couple of kilometers to go and didn't feel like walking so I decided on an alternative approach from the northeast. I left my bike near a meadow and walked the last 400 m along a logging trail. The hashpoint was in a typical scandinavian troll forest. Afterwards I continued cycling north through Munga, Haraker and back home through Skultuna. Total distance covered: 47 km.
