Last-minute tips for cycling in summer

Escape the heat

Summer, sun and lots of sunshine – oh, the warm months of the year are wonderful. However, for cyclists hot temperatures can quickly become dangerous. Cycling in sweltering heat, with beads of sweat on the forehead can cause circulatory problems. The solution is to escape the heat and head off to the cooler climates of the north! Whether to Denmark, Norway, Finland or Sweden: you’ll find a great place for summer cycling amongst the fjords.

The island world of Finland

Fancy green forests, steaming geysers and crystal-clear seas? Then Finland is the perfect place for your summer cycle tour. The Finland islands between Finland and Sweden look like a painting. Unique rock formations, picturesque villages and wonderful views of the Baltic Sea await you on this cycle tour.
