In Love with Käring Island
Pilen Cykel donates bicycles to the Swedish Sea Rescue Service at Käringön - Käring Island. In early August the Avander family from Målilla traveled across Sweden to Käringön in Bohuslän with new fresh Pilen bicycles. On Käringön it is not permitted for vehicular traffic and there are no roads. Only trails, bicycle paths, bridges and rocks.
But the Sea Rescue personnel must be able to get to their boats in the shortest possible time and therefore has exemption to ride a bike. Pilen donated 5 bicycles to the station and visited them. A fantastic experience.
"Käring" is most probable the same word as the English "cairn". Thus, Käringön means Cairn Island.
In Bohuslän where rocks are bare
the North Sea waves hits the shore
you wrecked your ship
and land is far away
But even in your grave distress
pale and cold and almost dead
their is hope of salvation
a Search and Rescue station
I fell in love with old Käringön
they bring warmth to the cold
only heroes bicycles to their boats
the rest they have to walk
