Road cycling in Denmark is big and has grown massively in recent years. And for good reason; the road riding here in Denmark is fantastic. You'll find endless tarmac of all kinds well suited for riding, as well as good infrastructure and breathtaking landscapes.

Denmark is predominantly flat, but don't be fooled. The last Ice Age created endless ridges and hills, that nowadays result in beautiful local roads with climbs, descents, twists and turns. A road cyclist's paradise.

You'll never be far away from good opportunities for a coffee stop or bike repair, if needed. The train network covers most of Sealand too, so if you ever feel like shortening a ride, the nearest S-train station won't be far away.

Enjoy these loops out from Copenhagen and my local area, and don't forget to stop to take in the view! For more gravelly goodness in this region, check out komoot.com/collection/1429708/forest-roads-and-farm-tracks-my-favourite-copenhagen-gravel-rides.
