Hey folks, it's #SummerFun time! This week, as a vacation from the normal blogging routine, each day we'll publish a short biking route in Denmark. Maybe it will inspire a few people to try something a bit different from their usual workouts!

Once we hit the main highway, we'll just have to put up with it for a while, riding on the dedicated bike trails next to the road.
The road crosses a low causeway to the little island of Siø, then crosses a big bridge over to the island of Langeland. You can see the island's main town of Rudkøbing across the water. We'll take a look at Rudkøbing on the way back.

Route 80 takes you up Langeland's western shore on winding, quiet roads through fields and woods, with a few beaches to relieve the hot ride.
