City cycling

On the cycle paths of Sweden’s big cities you’ll come across lycra-clad speed merchants, dads transporting infants, hipsters on fixies, the occasional ‘tweedy’ and fellow cyclist going about their business on two wheels. And as we all know cycling is very cool. So, be cool and rent yourself a bicycle when you come to Sweden’s big cities.

Biking in Stockholm

Stockholm

Cycling in Stockholm is a breeze. And bike rental is easy and convenient at Citybikes. Want to hit the Scandi-cool designer shops of Stockholm – do it like a local – on two wheels. Coast Stockholm’s café scene and drop in for a fika - the Swedish word for coffee break. And if you want to combine your fika with legendary Italian bikes and bike-nerd goodies then hit the Bianchi Café at Norrlandsgatan 20.

Taking in the sights? Skansen, Vasa Museum, The City Hall (Stadshuset), the Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet). Trust us, the best way of getting there is by bike. Need more inspiration? Here’s some inspiration of Stockholm fashionistas on their bikes.

Gothenburg

Gothenburg on Sweden’s West Coast is the perfect cycling city. This gorgeously compact, art nouveau architecture and canalled city is velocipede heaven. The experiences here; Universeum, Liseberg, Röhsska and many others, as well as Gothenburg’s buzzing café culture and restaurant scene are all within comfortable biking distance.

Malmö

You could probably whizz by all of Malmö’s attractions in a day on a bicycle.  But it would be a bad idea, as Malmö’s attractions are worth getting off your bike for. Take the unfeasibly tall, twisty, turny Turning Torso building for example, or the more down to earth Möllevången district for smaller shops and international cuisine restaurants and cafés. Museums? Steer your steed in the direction of Malmöhus Castle, and go thoroughly modern at Moderna Museet, or visit the new Western Harbour district of the city. Click here for bike rentals in Malmö.

When?

You can rent bikes in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö from April to October.
