In western Uppland you will find an area with the poetically sounding name Fjärdhundraland. Because there are so many small-scale food producers in the area, they are sometimes called "Sweden's Tuscany". This bike ride gets stuck on it.

The bike ride starts from Örsundsbro, which lies between Uppsala and Enköping, along low-traffic roads with good road standards (mainly asphalt). Here you are in a vibrant countryside with an exciting history, great nature experiences and exciting small businesses.

You cycle and make small stops at charming cafes and farms with self-produced food. Along the way you enjoy the fertile, varied cultural landscape from the bicycle saddle. The name Fjärdhundrandand comes from the medieval Fjädrundaland which was a so-called folkland, a land area that had its own law and a lawman. Those who enjoy history can find many nice excursion destinations in the area.

Opening hours among cafes and farm shops may vary during the off-season. It is a rural environment and much to be done on the farms, but it is a fantastic bike ride even though it is not open everywhere. 


Bicycle friendly accommodation: Extend your bike tour with an overnight stay at a bicycle-friendly accommodation with special service for you as a cyclist. Book a room overnight at charming Gula Stallet Shop & Cafe midway between Västerås & Enköping. If you choose to cycle a few miles east there are several nice options such as Ekolsund Castle or Overseas agriculture or Brunnsta Gård.
