Tips for your bicycle trip...

We rent out the bikes with a helmet, but we also recommend the use of other safety equipment if you are going to use the bike in the trails in Hemsedal Ski Center, or similar places. An electric bike achieves high speed and weighs a lot, therefore one should not ride beyond capacity, to avoid injuries. Always start the trip by finding out how the different functions and modes of the bike work. And not least – remember to have fun!

Show consideration for others who travel in nature, and do not cycle in vulnerable areas such as wet terrain and other terrain where the wheels leaves traces. We recommend sticking to paths, roads, tractor roads and the like for a pleasant trip. Thank you.

Remember that you are in the mountains. Bring extra clothes, drinks (water) and a telephone with battery. Sunglasses, sunscreen and gloves are also recommended. Have a good trip!

Tips for your bicycle trip...

We rent out the bikes with helmets, but we also recommend using other safety equipment if you’re planning to use the bike, for example, in the downhill trails at Hemsedal Ski Resort. An e-bike can reach high speeds and weighs a lot, so it’s important not to push beyond your limits to avoid injuries. Always start your journey by familiarizing yourself with the different functions and modes of the bike. And most importantly – remember to have fun!

Show consideration for others in the wilderness, and avoid cycling in sensitive areas such as marshes and other terrain where wheel tracks can leave a lasting impact. We recommend sticking to trails, roads, tractor paths, and similar routes for an enjoyable outing.
