Cycling around Tromsø

_MG_1254

Troms has varied nature with many opportunities for different cycling adventures. You can discover everything from quiet city roads, both sealed and gravel, where you ride in a forest and open areas between majestic mountains to narrow coastal roads round fjords and out on islands, which inspire idyllic island-hopping by cycle.

And what about season for cycling? In Tromsø Outdoor we have no seasons for cycling. We cycle whole the year. Of course winter cycling may be more demanding, both when you think about temperature and how to prepare for it and when you think about icy roads. For conditions like these we recommend to use bikes with spiked tires. The same rule is for cars. They are more sticky to the roads and may improve your safety. For skiing in snow we recommend to try fatbikes. They are quite heavy to ride, but it is so much fun to ride in fresh snow on ski trails.
