Itinerary Introduction

Around the northern half of Roskilde Fjord in Denmark, this scenic circular cycle route requires a restful but short ferry ride over the strait at its northern tip. The route goes around the fjord, and back south to Frederikssund - and then you need to cycle back over the bridge to reach your starting point again. On the western half of the route - before you get to the ferry - you'll be cycling through mixed woodlands. The route is not suitable for racing bikes with thin tyres - but hybrid bikes should be fine in fair weather. You'll also be cycling through military land (it's well signed, and permitted) - so stick to the track. There's an ice cream shop and cafe at the southern ferry stop, if you need refreshments. Most (if not all) of the way you'll be following cycle route 40 "Fjordstien" - which is marked with blue signs. I deviated off a few times - but picked up the trail again - and my route here reflects that. I stopped for about an hour at Frederiksværk for lunch - and to get lost looking to pick Cycle Route 40 up again - so take that into account when looking at the times. I have done this route twice. If you're of average fitness, you'll be pretty tired at the end of this route - so bring snacks and plenty of water. It's a really rewarding ride through lush greenery in the spring and summer time.
