About the race

Käringsundsloppet was organized for the first time in 2010 as an “anniversary race” for a bicycle interested birthday child and has continued to be held as a popular recreational race. The race has developed and has today both open class races and race classes with distances for both beginners and the more experienced cyclist that wants a challenge.
This year’s edition of the event will have the same distances and classes as in recent years.
Saturday´s Tour d´Archipedalo is a 170km combined road and time trial race for the experienced cyclist. Both the long route and time limits will be a part of the challenge for the participants, especially in the competition class (no license needed). The open class open class, with i.a. more flexible start times will be an option also this year.
NOTE! By 31.5.2022 the distance needs to have at least 30 registered participants to be arranged.
The distances that will arranged on Sunday are the same as in recent years i.a. the Dahlmanslänken 110km, the Självstyret 30km and Stödhjulet 11km which is primarily meant for our younger participants. All these are open races ie no winners are appointed but everyone gets a medal at the finish line. They are suitable for both the beginner and the holidaymaker who wants a little bit longer challenge, but the focus isn’t on who first cross the finish line, but we enjoy the tour, the company and pleasant hang out after the finish when all participants are invited to a light lunch.
Electric bikes are welcome on Sunday! By allowing electric bikes in our race, we are giving more people the chance to a more mobile life!
On Sunday last year’s news, Open class other bike, is also included. There are bikes with tempo and triathlon handlebars or extra frames (bars are allowed in all classes) and/ or completely covered wheels allowed. These have their own start time 10min resp. 5 minutes after other classes!


Even when you are using an electric bike you are getting a workout since you have to move your legs for the bike to roll forward- you choose yourself how much work you do and how much the engine (netpower max 250 watts) helps you. The engine boosts the pedals and doesn’t get any additional force when the speed is over 25 km/h.

Just choose – there is a suitable route for everyone!


Start- and finish line is at Käringsund Resort & Conference, which is the competition center. The participants are here offered service as dressing room and sauna and also parking lots close to the start and finish.
Relatives and friends who aren´t participating in the race can, like other audience, watch the start and finish from the sunny terrace and during the race entertain themselves with various activities near the competition area – a successful day for everyone!

On Saturday night Käringsund Resort & Conference invites you to their traditional Rockabilly evening with both dinner and entertainment to a real rockabilly band.
A rockabilly buffet is served between 18.00-21.00 (29 € / adults, 12 € / children 5-12 years, 0 € / children 0-4 years) and from 21.00 to 01.30 plays Maryann & The Ramblin ‘Two which is an Estonian four-man band and thats play fast moving rockabilly and sets the mood for the evening!

After crossing the finish line on Sunday, we also this invite the participants to our Cykelträff – an opportunity for the participants to meet other cyclists!
