About Sjuhärad and the Bike Trail

About Sjuhärad

Sjuhärad is a beautiful inland area with natural scenery that includes more than 100 lakes hidden in hilly forests, beautiful gardens and cultivated fields. The region has been renowned for its textile industry and its market stalls for many years. It is also home to Sweden’s only preserved stave church, Hedareds stavkyrka. In the Middle Ages, Sjuhäradsbygden was Sweden’s southernmost border with Denmark, which was defended by a range of forts, now in ruins.

The bike trail around Sjuhärad

Bike trail Sjuhärad is Sweden’s first bicycle route with national signs. Clear red signs lead you across meadows, through forests, over bridges, past villages and through the occasional town.

120 of 150 kilometres is completely traffic-free, 24 km consists of low traffic intensity and 6 kilometres is on County Road number 156.

The bike trail was inaugurated at the end of May 2013 and is a result of good cooperation between Borås Ulricehamn, Svenljunga and Tranemo municipalities
