Start your bike ride at Gol train station and follow the signs in the direction of Nesbyen. The first part of the bike ride goes along gravel roads to Svenkerud.
Follow the cycling signs over the bridge and on to the “old road” to Nesbyen. Continue in this direction for about 3 km. Then follow the signs with “Nesbyen rundt” over Tyribakken Bridge.
From Tyribakken Bridge the trip goes up to Garnås. Halfway up the climb you can make a detour to the left and visit Garnås Meteorite Crater.
The climb continues all the way up Garnås and further through Fladalen. From Fladalen continue cycling through Ridalen. The landscape in these valleys seems to have been taken from a fairy tale, with narrow, winding roads, intriguing marshes, small streams and babbling brooks, culminating in a glorious view towards Mt. Skarvheimen.
From Ridalen you head off in the direction of Gol. The last stretch (8 kilometres) follows alongside the Hallingdal railway line and is relatively flat.
This trip is long and includes some steep uphill climbs. Therefore it is not suitable for small children or persons who are not physically prepared for this level of activity.
Distance: about 60 km
