cycling Sälen style

Sälen is best known as a skiing area but a few years ago they realised that they need something to keep the region going once the snow disappears. They’ve spent a not so small fortune on making the area attractive to cyclists during the summer months.

There are also information signs with maps, descriptions of the various types of runs, safety information and links to more info on the web…

If you don’t know how, go and ask them in Sälen.
