Bergslagen (SE)


This event is part of the Gravel Earth Series 2023

The Bergslagen area, located in central Sweden, is the cradle of the Swedish early industrial wonder with its countless mines and iron ores. Historical villages, connected by excellent gravel roads, are spread out amid the vast forests, lively streams and humble hills.

We invite you to explore the natural beauty and harsh hills in the Kilsbergen mountain range, the picturesque surroundings of Nora as well as the culinary gifts of Grythyttan and beyond. The venue for this years event is Åkerby Herrgård 8km from the beautiful old town of Nora and next to the Fåsjön lake.

Routes of 60, 126 and 194km + a 126 and 194km timed race option. The 194 and 126km race are part of the Gravel Earth Series circuit and category 2 and 3 points are awarded.
The event is limited to 400 participants. We welcome riders from all fitness levels for a social weekend of gravelgrinding.

A GPS device is needed to navigate the routes. Routes can be downloaded from this page (below).
