On average, the town of Bergen, Norway, gets 242 days of rain a year—not ideal for the host of one of Europe's biggest cycling races. But when you consider the mountainous coastal roads, the Bergenseres' passion for cycling, and their outspoken, often brash local patriotism, it starts to seem like the perfect location to hop on a bike and ride.

I made my first trip to Norway this spring to document the quieter side of BASE jumping. So much of the imagery I had seen was this wide angle, GoPro-style photography, usually accompanied by a Red Bull logo and a speed-metal soundtrack.
