Further down the page you can fin inspiration for experiences along the route.

The stage is 58 km, and you get a couple of good climbs along the way at Stubberup and Måle on Hindsholm. The rest of the stage is relatively flat. The stage is mainly on paved road.

The idyllic stage between Odense and Kerteminde takes you around the peninsula Hindsholm, which is among the areas in Denmark with the lowest rainfal. Besides being a plus for most cyclists, it also creates a unique wildlife and unique nature.

The entire stage offers fine accommodation, tempting farm shops and not least delicious restaurants.

You will of course also pass some of Fyn’s beautiful manor houses, such as Schelenborg and just outside Kerteminde is Hverringe - both can be enjoyed from the public road.
