Itinerary description

60km around the islands ons a bicycle / pushbike. It is all flat. Check the wind direction before setting off so you start against the wind.

The island part is nice and we were able to take smaller side roads which were nice. Don’t follow the main road as this one is boring.

The way back along the mainland is a just a long haul with nothing much to see. But at the end you can reward yourself at the big Reno Icecream restaurant and a visit to the temple next door (17:00 ceremony and men should take of shoes and T-shirt) which you will find in Thelma’s 2 km on the route.

If you have a motorized bike you could easily fit in the extra island which is connected to the island with a causeway.

We rented our bikes at starting point (check google maps for his number).
