#039 Topperyds Etapp 2
The Northern Loop
Distance: 103 km
Percentage: 50% Gravel
Style: Easier than Etapp 1 Gravel Riding
Route and words by: Daniel Johansson aka @cykeldanne
This is the second loop from Topperyds Bed and Breakfast topperyd.se
If you want to ride both loops from Topperyd you’ll have two big days of riding that easily could be upgraded with a bed and food at Topperyd. They also provide the possibility to wash your bike and store it safely during the night.
This loop is little longer than the first one but the roads are faster and all of it are possible to ride without pushing your bike on trails. The roads are mainly smaller tarmac and fast gravel with some shorter sections of forest roads.
You will ride through the countryside of Småland passing swim spots, the pyramid of Malte Liewen Stierngranat, Stalpet which is the highest water fall in Southern Sweden. Stop for a Swedish Fika either at the café at the water fall, at Thimons in Aneby or at Butik Botanik.
You can stop for a swim at the quarry before you pass the old mill in Stenkar around 20km from the end of the ride in Topperyd.
Enjoy the ride.
