The Bergheim family is not your typical bikers. For five days, they have made their way towards London, where they plan to cheer the Norwegians on in the men's road race on July 28.
"My average uphill speed is two to four kilometers per hour," 50-year-old Svein, the leader of the group, tells NBC. His bike and trailer weighs a total of 500 kilograms, and is laden with everything from a satellite dish and television to a stack of reindeer pelts.
Dad Svein, his wife Elisabeth and their 13-year-old daughter, Ida, and eight-year-old son Magnus took a boat from Norway to Denmark, then on bike to Esbjerg where they took the 18-hour ferry to Harwich. The family of four started biking as soon as they arrived in England, and has now finally reached London.
However, this isn't their first adventure as a family. They've traveled to several Tour de France races, and dad Svein and daughter Ida were in Vancouver for the last Winter Olympics.
The trip to London was a gift from Svein to Elisabeth for their 20th anniversary. "But maybe we'll get divorced when we're finished this trip," Elisabeth jokingly tells NBC.
The family plans to set up a camp near Box Hill, the site of the cycling road race events. Look for the Norwegian flags, they'll be hard to miss!
