Get the most out of your bike ride!

Here are some things to consider.

Shifting correctly

To make cycling more enjoyable and reduce the risk of chain breakage, it is important to shift gears correctly.

Keep in mind that:

Sit down on the saddle when changing gears.

Shift one gear at a time.

Change gear before the uphill - on the hill it may already be too late.

Brake correctly

Brake with both brakes.

Sit right

You can adjust the saddle height with a simple hand movement. It should be approximately at hip level. When you sit on the bike with the pedals at the bottom, your leg should be almost straight.

We explain where you can cycle

Here you can download free of charge the most common tracks around Hellas. 

For the beginner and the recreational cyclist:

For those looking for varying degrees of difficulty, we suggest you head to Tenntorp.

There you will find gravel roads as well as large and small paths.

How to find:

Cycle through the viaduct that you see from the rental.

There you turn left on the footpath - see the sign "MTB - mixed difficulty".

Follow the footpath along Ältavägen for about 1 km, see green line on the map above.

Cykling och MTB vid Hellasgården

You come to a junction with signposts for cyclists.

Turn left through the viaduct.

cykling vid Hellasgården och Erstavik

Read the local regulations on what applies to cyclists in the Erstavik area.

  • Adjust your speed to the road and other visitors.
  • Do not cycle on cultivated land or where you damage vegetation and footpaths or disturb wildlife.
  • Take it especially easy when meeting riders. Horses are easily frightened.

From where you are now, you will find both dirt roads and large and small paths.

For those who want a marked trail, we can recommend the green marked trail, which offered mixed challenges.

If you want to compose your own route, we suggest that you look at the maps posted in the terrain.

Orientation map over the entire Nackare Reserve can be a good tool, which you can use many times. The map is available at Hellasgården, in the The lakeside café/reception.

A mobile phone can be an extra security.

For the experienced cyclist - and for those who want big challenges:

The blue-marked so-called Cycling Trail leads you straight into the forest, where the trail winds its way on mostly small paths, over a boardwalk, through some wet areas, over rocky outcrops and countless roots.

This trail is not recommended for children and inexperienced cyclists.

The track starts at the rental. Here you can download a map with all our tracks!

You cycle through the viaduct that you see from the rental.

Turn right onto the footpath - see the sign "MTB - cykelspåret".

After about 100 metres, when the footpath forks, keep left.

After another 200 metres, turn left across a meadow. See the blue sign with arrow and the text "MTB".

The track enters the forest on the other side of the meadow, you can't miss it.

Here are some pictures from the trail that for many years has been used by many cyclists and that is nowadays called Cykelspåret, or - in the MTB community - Våta Fötter.

Great variety and mixed challenges. 

Did you know that the City of Stockholm, in cooperation with the Municipality of Nacka, has far-reaching plans for a cycle path in the Nackareservatet? We are following the development, in the very best case the new trail will be in place already this year.

Here you can read more about the planned cycle path and how we want to contribute to fewer new paths is created by making it clear where you can and should cycle.

MTB rental is an activity that we run in close cooperation with Outventures.
