An end goal was Ida's bridge. Main meal at the restaurant was very good. The accommodation was good but the breakfast was poor, old dry bread poor supply among other things. Day four we were going to pick up our packed lunch, but no staff understood what we were talking about. After a while we got a salad box with salmon that was raw. Pensionat Prästgården was all excellent with an excellent breakfast and well-prepared packed lunches. The trip between Töreboda and Karlsborg required more than a 7-speed bike, which should be pointed out in the advertising brochure. The visit to Karlsborg Fortress was interesting and rewarding.
