Jyväskylä is known for its sports events and opportunities. The distances are short and the city has a large number of pedestrian and cycle routes, which makes cycling pleasant and easy. The city centre has cycle lanes, and cyclists can also choose from a diverse range of routes for cross-country and road cycling and enjoy interesting sights along the way.

Circling Jyväsjärvi lake, the 13-kilometre Rantaraitti route is ideal for shorter cycling trips. The entire route is paved, and cyclists can enjoy spectacular lakeside scenery in the middle of the city and even take a refreshing dip in the water from one of the lake’s beaches. For those interested in longer cycling trips, the Jyväskylä region offers a wide selection of options and beautiful landscapes. The island of Naissaari by the Vaajakoski Canal, for example, is a nice place for a coffee break.

Laajavuori Bikepark offers a multitude of trails for downhill, enduro and XC mountain biking, from flat terrain to rooty singletracks. Read more in Finnish: www.laajis.fi/bikepark
