The West Zealand countryside should be enjoyed by bike! Feel the wind in your hair and don't miss a smell - from the flowers in the hedgerows, the cows in the fields and the breeze from the sea.
You can buy a cycling map at Kalundborg Tourist Office showing nine routes in and around Kalundborg. All the routes start and finish at the same place. On the map you will find descriptions of the sights you'll pass along the way. The rides take you through alternating landscapes; in some places the sea and land merge into one, while in others, the coastal landscape rises sharply and steeply. You will encounter idyllic harbours, pleasant villages and dramatic Ice Age landscapes. The routes have been planned so that you can experience the area's many stories along the way.
At the tourist offices in Korsør, Skælskør and Slagelse you can pick up a small brochure containing 10 cycle routes, 3 of them starting and finishing in one of the three towns, plus one which follows the coast from Bildsø to Bisserup.
You can also plan your own route. On a cycling or rambling holiday the time passes so slowly that you will have plenty of time to see everything and stop to enjoy the view. The area offers masses of cycling experiences along pleasant roads with little traffic. There are plenty of excellent paths, so you'll have no difficulty finding a beautiful route that will take you anything from a couple of hours, a whole day or an entire week. Locate some exciting stop-offs, add in a delicious lunch and take along refreshments for a "rest with a view". Find inspiration to routes at Dansk Cyklist Forbund
You can also use the website Friluftsguiden.dk to plan your very own route.
