We had the pleasure to welcome a participation record of 7567 registered participants to the start of the 10th Halvvättern.
There were the best possible weather conditions this day. The air was a bit chilly in the early morning hours when the first cyclists rolled away, but it soon warmed up to a more comfortable temperature and a lovely sun shone from a clear blue sky.
7 503 registered is a new record! Unfortunately the number of starting and completing isn’t a record.
Most of it can be blamed on the poor weather. If Tjejvättern was a sunny ride, Halvvättern was a windy ride. The winds were so heavy that the end time for finishing was postponed and the final rider crossed the finish line at 8:22 pm.
Never before has so many registered, started and completed Halvvättern. The Sunday gave mild winds and a spectacular sunshine and all the participants smiled after the ride. This was probably the best Halvvättern in history according to most people.
