This week, we add an array of exciting new rides from Sweden with Jan Svenungson.
Join contributor Jan Svenungson and get a taste for Sweden. Cycle through the west coast and the town of Marstrand. Then hop through eight islands in less than an hour.
Finally, head out for a relaxed ride to the nature reserve of Svartedalen.
The beautiful Swedish landscapes are not one to miss, so get a pedal on and check them out.
You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App.
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.More Info
On this ride you will start on the mainland of the Swedish west coast and go for some island hopping. In less than an hour you will visit eight islands and end up on the south shores of Stora Askerön, at a place unimaginatively named "Fishing Gulf".More Info
Heading out for a relaxed ride on a slightly overcast day, leaving the village of Ucklum behind as we take aim on the nature reserve of Svartedalen. Halfway to our destination of Klaresjön (Clear Lake) we leave the tarmac behind and ride the rest on dirt roads. Along the route, we pass a few clear-felled areas, but as we enter the nature reserve we are surrounded by protected primeval forests that contain the largest contiguous coniferous forests in southwest Sweden.More Info
