A proper Småland adventure
Distance: 84,7 km
Percentage: 70% Gravel
Style: Mixed Gravel
Route and words by: Daniel Johansson aka @cykeldanne
At GRVL.se we have always been a non-commercial website promoting routes for the love of riding. For the next two posts our philosophy has remained the same. We neither ask or accept payment for posts on our site. Danial Johansson has been a friend to GRVL.se for many years and when we saw his two rides in Småland we were immediately interested in promoting them, for the love of riding. Enjoy!
This is the first of two loops from Topperyds B&B topperyd.se
The idea is that you can ride one loop, eat and sleep at Topperyd and then after breakfast take on the next loop.
But of course if you prefer to wild camp or ride both loops in one go that’s also possible.
This loop is for the more experienced cyclist and it is pretty demanding.
More than 70% of the route is unpaved and you will ride on gravel, trails, forest roads and most probably push your bike shorter distances.
The route passes Tomtabacken which is the highest point of Southern Sweden, Långserum and the beautiful area around Lyngemadsjön.
In Hok you could stop for food either at Hooks Herrgård or at the pizzeria in the village.
