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 Saturday June 15th, 2024 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 the nature and culture of the country while enjoying some world class cycling.  

Norway is a country of warm summers, and long cold winters.  Its people have learned to enjoy the outdoors 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 RIB (Zodiac) and in kayaks. On Wednesday, June 26th, 2024, our ride ends in Ålesund with a group transfer to the airport (AES) where plenty of international options are available via Schiphol, Amsterdam.

Our ride is supported by UteGuiden,a locally based adventure … (Join People Cycling to read more)

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 rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
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 bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

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.
