About the race

Käringsundsloppet was organized for the first time in 2010 as an “anniversary race” for a birthday child interested in cycling and has continued to be held as a popular recreational race.
The race has gradually developed and in recent years has been a cycling event with distances both for beginners and holidaymakers as well as for the more experienced cyclist who wants challenges.
This year we will again make some adjustments when we put more focus on Saturday’s 170km Tour d´Archipedalo, which was introduced in 2017. It is a 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.
The participants cycle along the route Eckerö – Föglö – Kumlinge – Vårdö – Eckerö.The race lasts all day and offers both competition and exercise classes. 

In 2023 we will also as before offer cycling on Sunday, but we will leave out both timing and partial course markings in order to go out for a “sunday cycling” together with other participants.

At 110km there will be two speed groups to choose between and a guide who will accompany them during the cycling! 30- and 10km will, as before, have the route marked and no guide.
Sunday’s routes are suitable for everything from beginners to vacationers who want a slightly longer challenge. The focus is not on who gets to the finish line first, but we will enjoy the ride, the company and the pleasant company after the finish when all participants are offered a light lunch.
Once back in Käringsund on Sunday the popular “Cykelträffen” will again be organized, i.e. the participants will be offered a light lunch consisting of i.a. grilled sausage, cold beer and nice cycling talk!

Käringsund MTB

In co-operation with IF Åland Cykel a MTB race is arranged on Sunday 2.7 at 11am-1.30pm on the specially built MTB track in Käringsund. If you register your ride on Strava, you have a chance to win a prize for the most laps around the track between 11am-1.30pm and for the fastest lap of the day. The track is 2,9km

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!
Other bikes with tempo and triathlon handlebars as well as extra frames and/or fully covered wheels are also allowed on Sunday, if they start and ride last in the group.
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 (35 € / adults, 15 € / 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!




The Rockabilly buffet can be

After crossing the finish line on Sunday, we also this year invite the participants to our Cykelträff – an opportunity for the participants to meet other cyclists! All the participants are offered a light grilled lunch an a chance to can hang out and talk to other participants.
