Sarpsborg/Fredrikstad – Moss
It is nice to start the day by cycling along the pier in Fredrikstad. Pay attention to walking. It is quite good signage at this stage, and it is easy to follow. It is an idyllic small house development through Gressvik. The route continues through some forest areas and also comes down to the sea with bathing opportunities, restaurants and cafes. Shorter stretches with gravel road, but mostly asphalt. Farm with sheep grazing. Some trail biking in the area by Evje Golfpark.
Keep in mind that some of the restaurants along the road are only open during summer time or weekends, so we recommend you to check in advance and maybe bring your own picknick lunch. Today’s stage is hilly with some slightly longer slopes, but quite easy to ride. Well arrived in Moss there are several hotels in the center in addition to Refsnes Estate on Jeløya a few km away.
Public transport: You can travel by train to/from Sarpsborg, Fredrikstad and Moss and you can bring your bicycle on the train. See vy.no for more details.
