5 pages in so at least some people have been able to get some good use out of the thread Big Grin

I was just thinking, it might be very useful to a lot of people if there was a list of some of the best places to ride bikes in Norway?

If you think it might be an idea then just post a comment about the spot/area/bike park, where it is and what kind of riding its good for and I can add it to the opening post so people have a reference to check out depending on what kind of riding they want to do?

Ya I would down for that! I'm moving in March so maybe we could get together and ride some of the local trails before Hafjell opens.

Sure! we can do that,, we will also be clearing some new trails this spring just 25 minutes outside Oslo in some pretty steep terrain that should be good for some gnarly, and some flowing parts.

I'm going backpacking with some friends (biking friends) in the Lofoten Area later this year before travelling across to Sweden to hike the Kunsleden trail tup

I'm trying to find the best ways to travel between the places and google maps is being a bit of a bitch. I was wondering if anybody would kind enough to give me some help. Either inbox me or reply to this if you think you could be that kind person Big Grin

Thank you Salute

Hi, the bus connections on the Lofoten are normally pretty good to get from one place to another. For more flexibility renting a car is probably. As the NOK is going to hel it might even be a bit cheaper these days.

If I read the maps correct the Kunsleden trail starts on the E-10 which is the road between Narvik and Kiruna. So it should be possible to drop off the buss on the way. Here is a link to the bus company and the time tables http://www.ltnbd.se/timetables/61/0/. Line 91 goes fro Narvik to Kiruna.
