The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience of cycling round the scenic lake Vättern. We recommend a minimum of about 1 000 kilometres’ training prior to the event. Start with a few short training rides and gradually increase the distance as you build up your stamina. During the weeks leading up to Vätternrundan you should try to complete at least a couple of long rides of no less than 100-150 kilometres. Don’t worry about wind, rain or cold weather – get up on your bike and train. The more training you do, the better your chances of completing – and enjoying – Vätternrundan’s 315kms.
Group cycling has its advantages and charm and is also fun and social. For your own and your fellow cyclists safety, here follow a number of tips concerning signs and signals that you ought to be aware of.
Never train unless you are 100% fit. Do not attempt to cycle Vätternrundan if you have any signs or symptoms of illness. It is better to cancel than to jeopardize your health. We recommend that you sign up for the “Folksam Motionsloppsförsäkring” cancellation insurance when registering. This entitles you to a refund of the entire entry fee if you are unable to participate because of illness.
