Distances: 70, 85 km
Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills

Grg – Glan Runt på Grus will also return this summer. Those, like me, as I am a little older, remember Glan Runt, an exercise race that in its heyday (!) had five-digit participant numbers. Unfortunately, the interest went out. This is an attempt to attract gravel cyclists to an alternative and in my eyes much nicer route than gneting asphalt along the rv51! Starting and finishing at Himmelstalund. Two options 70 km and 85 km respectively, of which ~85% gravel. A few short trail sections. The tour runs on the embankment from the railway to Kimstad and past glansgruvan nature reserve.

Alert Us

All events under the Velonavia Gravel Series are unsupported, with a nod to early more adventurous bike races. You should bring basic repair equipment, water and energy with you. After about 28 km we pass Mårängens camping. There is a kiosk and water. At Mo Gård, about 38 km, there is a commercial garden. I'm sure you can fill water there.
