Lönneberga Gravel


Lönneberga. Mariannelund. Katthult. Bullerbyn. All routes of this event run through these fictional – yet entirely real – places, connected by scenic gravel roads. To keep your mind and legs fresh during the day, there will be coffee stops with classic Swedish fika and local specialities.

There are three different routes to choose from:

70 km / 950 m climbing

100 km / 1400 m climbing

165 km / 2200 m climbing

All routes follow undulating gravel roads, farming roads through the forests, a few singletracks and some short sections of tarmac to catch your breath. The roads are chosen with care to provide beautiful sights and experiences along the route, with as little car traffic as possible.

How it works

Lönneberga Gravel is by no means a race, it is all about the experience and adventure. Hence, you choose your speed yourself. You may register alone or as a team of two. We encourage cooperation between cyclists along the route, but remember to never take any risks. All roads are open to the public, and all Swedish traffic rules apply.

All participants will get a GPX-file with the route for navigation five days before the event. We will also have two guided groups at the 100 km and 165 km routes, if you don’t want to navigate yourself. The guides will hold an average speed of around 22 km/h.​

Start and finish is at Fredensborgs Herrgård, a manor built in 1875, 10 km south of Vimmerby, Småland. Along the routes, there will be 3-4 coffee stops, and once finished we will celebrate with hot food and cold drinks at Fredensborg. Here you could also take a refreshing bath and enjoy the sauna at lake Gissen. The after bike will finish with a prize giving ceremony, where all participants has the chance to win nice prizes from our partners. 

Prior to the event, all participants will receive a link where you can download GPX-files to navigate along the routes, by phone or bike computer. We also have 10 GPS bike computers from our partner Wahoo Fitness available to borrow on a first come, first served basis – just write a note when registering if you want one. 

Throughout the day, our service car will be on standby along the route, available to call if anyone gets mechanical (or bodily) problems. We will also ride ourselves to make sure everyone enjoys the day.
