The Biking Viking aka Bobby is currently touring the Lipari Islands in Southern Italy. The islands are of volcanic origin and therefore offer impressive views, unique geology and tough mountain tours. After 77 days on the road on the gravel bike, Bobby has cracked the 3,000 kilometer mark. After the Lipari islands, Corsica is the next country on the agenda. Vive la France!
