Varbergs Sommargiro is back!  

In 2022 we restarted after two gloomy pandemic years. And what a success it was – 500 cyclists, beautiful weather, Sweden’s most picturesque starting point, a great atmosphere and tasty food at the finish line. It couldn’t have gone better. Even so our ambition is to make this event even more of highlight in the cycling calendar. 

Welcome to the sixth staging of our annual summer cycling event, which starts and finishes in the charming town of Varberg on the south west coast of Sweden. Varberg is situated around one hour south of Gothenburg and three hours north of Copenhagen.

There are three different courses: 32 km (for standard bicycles and electric bicycles), 68 km and 110 km (both for racers and hybrids) as well as a separate category for high wheel (penny farthing) bicycles. Each route takes you through scenic and tranquil Swedish countryside, in the county of Halland, on very quiet roads. 

Varbergs Sommargiro has become a firm favourite and is attracting more and more cyclists. In our launch year of 2016 we attracted 387 cyclists. In 2019 over 800 cyclists took part. Make sure that you secure your place now, click on the links (LOPPEN) to enter
