What makes Nesbyen so good for riding bikes?
There are several things that make Nesbyen such a great MTB destination. The warm and dry climate in the summer (Nesbyen is officially Norway´s warmest place) makes the trails mostly dry and nice. In spring time, the trails in the “East side” are often bare just after Easter, while you can still go cross-country skiing in the mountains 15 minutes away by car.
Terrain is another factor that is on our side. Within the municipality of Nesbyen, you can choose between steep trails in the East side or from the mountain Beia, or you can aim for one of the more moderate trails that you find both in the east side, above the Hallingdal Museum and in Nes Sørmark. On the high mountain you have a huge network of singletrack trails with opportunities to climb gentle peaks along the way.
Several cycling competitions are held regularly in Nesbyen, including The Norwegian Cup (80/20) and DH Norwegian Championship.
