Biking with Kids
Once a child has learned to ride a bicycle, it’s difficult to stop those peddling little feet! It’s easy to understand, because riding a bike is so much fun. If you want to go biking with your kid when visiting Sunne, there are several good places. Mountainbiking in the woods is recommended, since you don’t need to worry about traffic. Down at Mejeriängen by lake Fryken in Sunne, you can find a pump track where kids can practice their technique and balance. It’s always best to avoid traffic when biking with children.
What kind of road do you prefer?
Your choice between road or path probably depends on your type of bike and why you are riding it. Is it for a workout on asphalt roads, for experience nature in the woods, or maybe to get between point A and B? The right bike will give you the best experience. A racing bike is not ideal for the gravel road, and your grandmother’s old bike with no gears won’t help you on the mountaibike trail. Once you’re in Sunne, you are at the perfect starting point for many biking adventures in Värmland.
