Flott tur med svært variert veg. Alt frå sving i sving i skogen til lange beinstrekk og 'høgfjell' Mindre deler av vegen nyt ein best på endurosykkel. Men det aller meste vil eg tru er kjekt for dei aller fleste
Great alternative when travelling between Gol and Hemsedal
Good alternative when travelling from Gol to Hemsedal
If you need a good place to stay or a better lunch, drop by Storefjell høyfjellshotel just off the route.
Beware of Wildlife!
Fantastic route with superb views and excellent twisties and sweepers. This truly is what riding is all about.
Just be aware of sheep
great biking road from Bromma to Eggedal
Great way to avoid the boring E6 through Trondhjem. Takes you past the Selbu lake (where a great historic hotel is situated), and up towards the city of Røros (Unesco World heritage site).
Ta av til tingberg, kjør nordover lags E6. ( gamleveien )ta til høyre etter Thompson, følgveien videre til Sølvskottberget.
Look out for cattle and sheeps
Watch out for sheep and catle in the mountain area
Superb mountain crossing, only open during the Summer months. Do yourself a favour and take time for the detour up to Dalsnibba peak, for panoramic views.
The clean and fresh mountain lakes look inviting, and probably would be if they were a bit warmer or if you e an ice-swimmer.
When you get to Geiranger stay at the Union hotel. Its a great experience to swim in the pool while enjoying the view of the fjord. There are many good routes for hikes in the mountains, and lots of activities in Geiranger (kayaking, boat-rides, etc).
Also you might enjoy the local dessert - Svele. Its a kind of pancake, often served with sweet butter.
Fabulous mountain route, with many many great views. Check out the Besseggen ridge, if you have the time to hike it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Besseggen
Along the route there are many good hotels and lodgings. If you prefer, you can stay in supercharming mountain-lodges, such as Brimi Fjellstugu. It is - surprisingly for those that have not heard of Arne, the cousin of the guy who runs it - also a gourmet destination not to be missed.
Two places along the route there are special stops with great photo-ops.
The first half of the route has lots of really nice straights.
And the second half has lots of nice corners. Schitzofrenic almost ;-)
The route ties together E16 and E4, and thus provides a corridor for those that come from the South of Norway, are heading North, and want to avoid Oslo traffic.
Along the route you can visit the Museum / Art Gallery Kistefos, which is well worth the time. They have a good collection of contemporary art. You can also visit the Hadeland Glassworks , where you can learn all about making glass and purchase at factory-outlet prices.
A favourite route, when I have the time.
It starts out along the scenic Hurdal lake,
and goes up a great valley, with lots and lots of corners.
If you do it the other way (down) be gentle with your brakes,
so that they dont overheat.
When you get to Lygnaseter, do yourself a great, big favour and stop to try out their Napoleon cake. It is one of the best around. See also www.napoleonskake.com or Vanilla Slice If it is warm you can sit outdoors and enjoy the serene view of the Lygna lake.
Very nice & twisty road in the mountain area on the border between Sweden & Norway. On the way from Sälen to Trysil you will pass a number of wellknown Swedish & Norwegian skiing resorts. Therefore, in the winter time it is crowded - but in the summer...? Just gas it - not much trafic will be coming your way. And not much police either. But be on the look-out, anyway. If they do come your way, they will be coming down hard on you if youre speeding. (And you should...! :o) )
