Cycle city Gothenburg

Gothenburg is a relatively small city that can easily be cycled from one part to the other, which is why one of the best ways to explore it is by bike.  There are also mountain bike areas close to the city.

You can hire bikes in many places around Gothenburg using the Styr & Ställ scheme, which means you can conveniently change from bike to tram on several stretches. Pick up a cycle map in the Gothenburg Visitor Centre.
