This map shows the bike route we will taking. It starts in Stockholm, moves south and west, then north and back east to Stockholm. As you can see there are numerous lakes and waterways in this part of Sweden. In fact, Stockholm is spread over 14 islands with about 30% of the city being covered with water.
The notable things about the landscape on our ride is that the southern part is generally covered with large wheat fields and very little commercial facilities. In the northern part of the ride there are major forests and more hill climbing then in the south. All in all the country is beautiful and very natural.
Another distinctive thing about this route is there are something like 300 castles along the way. We will be visiting a few of them on the ride.
Sit back and enjoy our RIDE IN SWEDEN.
