MTB-Vättern is an entrance race with two distances – 45 km and 25 km. Both distances requires rather effortless biking and everyone from 11 years of age has the possibility to participate in this recreational race. As a participant you can count on a big variation along the road – fast asphalt passings alternates with forest roads, hills and more technical biking on paths.
During 2017 MTB-Vättern will have capacity to host 900 participants and the starting procedure will be alike our other races – 70 participants in each start group starting every other minute.
Just like the other rides the start takes place at the square (Stora Torget) and end at Vätternpromenaden next to the Motala bay.
Starting times: 18.30–around 19.00 p.m
