Hi. I'm thinking of traveling to Sweden this summer and biking with a friend from Göteborg to Stockholm (or vice versa). Is anyone familiar with the bike routes in this area, and is Sweden very cyclist friendly?
Depends what your friend expects when he/she says there aren't many cycling paths. Don't expect a path all the way from Stockholm to Göteborg, but stick to smaller roads and you will be fine. In towns like where we live, paths are abundant, as in bigger cities like Stockholm and Göteborg. Svenska Cykelsällskapet has maps for sale - I'll calll them tomorrow (Monday) and ask what they suggest for the route you're thinking of. We live in Växjö, which is a slight detour, but if you make it here, you're certainly welcome to a bed, shower and meal.KellyMo said:Thanks everyone. I'm glad someone from Sweden has chimed in as well.
I was thinking in July or August. It is dependent on some things that might be going on around then. My friend, who lives in Åsa, (and will be biking with me, in theory) has said there aren't too many biking paths. The links have been very informative though, so hopefully between those and anything else that might pop up, I can figure out what to do.
Thanks again! (And feel free to keep adding more info
