This bike ride takes you on winding roads from central Nyköping towards Blacksta, a suitable day trip in beautiful scenery. You pass several lakes, and we recommend you stop at the bathing place in Edstorp and take a swim if the weather allows.

Nyköping is one of Sweden's oldest cities and there is much to discover here. You cycle at a leisurely pace through Nyköping and along the Nyköping River. If you make a small detour, there is a unique area with ancient remains, in the middle of the city. Because you cycle on old country roads that you share with cars, the tour is not suitable for families with children. Blaxta winery and Kvarnen Café are the final destinations for the day.
