Ride Description

General Information & Ride Overview

Few countries can provide the sheer jaw dropping scenery that abounds in Norway.  The coastline alone is a natural wonder, permeated by fjords and leading to a unique system of roads and ferries to traverse the central region of Ålesund where our experience concentrates.  Starting on Tuesday, August 2nd in Oslo (OSL) and continuing for 12 days and 11 nights. Our fully supported and guided ride explores the capital on foot before taking a scenic train into the heartlands of Fjord country, staying in carefully selected accommodations, and experiencing deeply the nature and culture of the country whilst enjoying some world class cycling.  

Norway is a country of warm summers, and long cold winters.  It's hardy and practical people have learned to enjoy the outdoors regardless of the season, and respect nature.  Houses and buildings are warm and cosy, as a result of short winter days and extreme weather.  We will visit at the best time for great summer cycling weather, and will travel by boat, train and bike throughout.  To break up the cycling, we take expeditions on foot, by RIde in Barge and in kayaks. On the August 13th, 2022, our ride ends in Ålesund with a group transfer to the airport (AES) where plenty of international options are available via Schiphol, Amsterdam.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
