Europa Compostela 2010
The European Pilgrim Relay

Trond Gilde, the first Norwegian partcipant in Europa Compostela 2010, started on his bicycle trip from Stiklestad towards Trondheim 26 February 2010. With the relay baton tied to his bicycle, he cycled all the 95 km to Trondheim where there was an exchange of the baton at Nidaros Pilgrims' Centre.
