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!
Today's route explores the east coast of the big Danish island of Fyn (Funen), then turning inland to end at the island's capital of Odense. It's a nice mix of deserted beaches, fields, thatched-roof farmhouses, old harbors and a couple of big towns. So off we go...
Regional Bike Route 50 heads up the east coast from Svendborg, hugging the water for part of the way, and sometimes zig-zagging inland to get around woods, campgrounds or big manor farms.
