Oslo by bike

Oslo is a great city for bicycle trips, with a compact city centre and short distances to major attractions.

Whether you want to see attractions or scenery, or just get some excercise, Oslo has a bike route that suits your needs - anything from relaxing, flat cycle routes to challenging off-road cycling in the hilly forests.
