We call Fyn and its Archipelago “Bike Island” because with its 1,200 km of signposted cycle routes, the region gives cyclists of all ages the chance to explore widely varied cycling terrain: everything from flat stretches close to the coastline, to hilly roads winding their way between fields and areas of woodland and through idyllic villages and market towns. Take your bike “island hopping” and discover the special way of life on the numerous small islands scattered around Fyn, or explore the delights of the bike-friendly city of Odense, which features both centuries of history and modern metropolitan life with a strongly beating pulse. Moreover, Fyn has off-road routes and trails that are sure to provide a challenge and a treat for mountain bikers of every level. Fyn and the islands have actually been awarded the title of “UCI Bike Region”. This is an award that the International Cycling Union (UCI) presents to towns, cities and regions that have clear strategies for developing cycling in their area, along with the capacity to attract and host major UCI events.
