Length 88 km (55 miles), terrain: light hills, gain 506 meters
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 follows the east coast of Denmark's Jutland peninsula, heading south along National Cycle Route 5. This route is known as the Vand Vejen ("Water Way"), and for good reason. There are plenty of bays, beaches and hilltop views out over the Baltic Sea to the east, with regular spots to swim, which is great on a hot day.
|And the Fredericia town center|
But no worries: the bike route keeps us away from all the traffic.
Leaving Fredericia, we head directly westwards, crossing car route 171, then two freeways and a railway. There are also some industrial parks nearby, so this is one of the least scenic stretches of the whole week-long trip.
