Froylandsvatnet Lakeside Cycle Ride

This is a beautiful and varied 20km circular cycle ride around Froylandsvatnet lake, on lakeside trails, through woodland and on roadside cycle tracks with plenty of picnic spots. Take the picturesque train ride from Stavanger to get you and your bikes there!

and through woodland The cycle trail runs right beside the lake for the entire western side and is very sheltered. On the eastern side, the cycle track follows beside the 505 road with the optional recommended diversion through Njaskogen woods.

The ride can begin at several points around the lake. Recommend that the direction of cycling be chosen with the wind behind along the more exposed eastern side!
To shorten the trip, cycle along the western side, either there and back (15km), or just part way, taking a train to and from different stations.
