(Time is flexible is flexible if you book first) A unique bicycle tour is waiting for you: we cycle and walk in less known areas. It's a not 'a touristic tour' but a sportive discovery of local culture & nature. We don't visit much the city center, but the hidden gems. THIS TOUR IS A GREAT IDEA FOR A GIFT! IT´S SUGGESTED TO DO THIS TOUR AS YOU ARRIVE IN HELSINKI, SO YOU GET TIPS IN ORDER TO BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE, YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO RIDE A BIKE AT AN AVERAGE SPEED OF 15km/h. You will discover: Nature (the most amazing parks: Keskuspuisto & Seurasaari) Food (tasty vegetarian/vegan bites) Drinks Sauna Iconic spots (that you may not find otherwise) WE WILL: Smell pure air, Taste food like a Finn, Touch the trees & stones that made Finland´s landscapes unique. I offer few ebikes & simple city bicycles, they fit people taller than 1,65m(5,4ft). We will cycle for about 20 km. The road is mostly flat, it´s steeped in just five points. We will have breaks, at every stop we learn something about Finnish culture; in a stop, we will also have food/drinks. We end with a tonifying Finnish-legendary superfun sauna in the most representative place. It´s not mandatory to be in the sauna, you can also be outside taking pictures of the city view. *There are naked people BIKES RENTAL In case no experience is scheduled, I can rent you out (e)bikes. Rain?=reschedule/cancel See you!
I am an Activist-Environmentalist, organizing cycling events---such as ¨The World Naked Bike Ride¨ on the 20th of July--in several European countries. For almost twenty years, I devoted my life to bicycles, I don´t own a car, I use a cargo bicycle for heavy transportation, and I also travel by bicycle around the world (BikeTravelTheater.org). Nature, Bicycles, and Finnish culture are my main passions in life, I have spent months in the Finnish forests sleeping in a tent. During one full year, I have been hosted by Finnish people in hundreds of local accommodations, learning the local culture. I am studying Finnish Language and Culture. I also have collaborators (Liza & Valeria) that may guide you, they are, of course, also passionate about bikes and Finnish culture and has good knowledge of the tour.
