Bike ride from Åmøy to Mosterøy
Until 1993 these islands were served by a ferry, but now the E39 passes through under-sea tunnels north from Stavanger, and the islands are linked by bridges. This makes possible a cycle ride - on mainly quiet, narrow roads - the 15 kilometers between east Åmøy, Mosterøy and Utstein Kloster, with detours along the way if you want.
