For the 22nd time, Jæren MC threw a party for all bikers in the Stavanger region on May 1st when the traditional and possibly largest motorcycle gathering in Norway took place. Blessed with the best weather one could possibly wish for, somewhere between 2000 and 2500 bikers are believed to have taken part in the event.

Equipped with both my Canon EOS 7D and the GoPro HD Hero 2, I was well equipped to document the ride, however, due to my technical dumbness, I was not able to capture any video this time, only still photos. Below are some samples – please make sure you visit the Photos page for all of the pictures from Vårsleppet!
