Marstrand

Tjuvkil, Västra Götalands län, Sweden

New - Hilly

This ride takes us to a historically important and interesting location on the west coast of Sweden; the town of Marstrand (Shoal Beach). Its fortress has been an important defensive location since it was built in 1658 and it has also served as a prison, nowadays it's a popular tourist attraction and the town hosts several sailing competitions during the summer. Cycling here makes you realise why sailing is so popular, even though the elevation gain is modest the speed is almost always kept low by the persistent westerly winds.
