You can start the bike ride at Axamobadet, which is located on the lake's south shore. The tour goes along the lake through the cozy Axamo forest. Axamoskogen and the lake are next door to the high bog Dumme bog and is located high in the landscape.
Tobias Dahlberg, who has produced the round, suggests bringing swimwear. Especially on a hot day, it can be nice to take a dip in Axamosjön after the bike ride. For the first part, follow the Rallarleden markings, which are fiery yellow. The goal is Hallbystugan in a northeasterly direction. The route is easy to cycle. At the sports center there are lots of tracks for both running and cycling.
Green or blue around the lake
Tobias recommends that you follow the green or blue trail around the lake. Cycling is no more difficult or strenuous than most people can handle. A small spice in the MTB tour for the younger cyclists are the two commercial gardens along the route. In summer there is a café at Nyströms and an ice cream box at Höglunds. Check the opening hours to be sure! There is also a kiosk at Axamobadet.
Extra trip on the Olsbo line
You who have the strength and feel for more cycling can follow the Rallarleden and then continue on the Olsbo line. Many exciting turns await you here!
