Taberg – cycling with a view
An easy cycling route with a tough climb that will give you of the best views in southern Sweden.
Mountainbike with variety. Taberg and Torsvik offer a great mit of trails and gravel roads for MTB-enthusiasts. From the large logistic center at Torsvik you head west aiming for the former mining village of Taberg, Månsarp or the old industrial valley of Norrahammar.
Closest to Torsvik, by the quarrel, several trails goes back and forth in the area, also used for MC-trial. This gives a different type mountainbike trail to encounter compared to other sites around Jönköping. Intense but short uphills with stones and roots makes the riders really use their technique in the best way. Stay and play for a while and challenge yourself and your fellow cyclists.
From this point it might be nice to roll onto some of the flat gravel roads surrounding Lake Tahe towards Granarp or Taberg. There is also narrow trails that gives a great feeling of speed riding them. One alternative leaving from Lake Tahe is passing the train tracks and head towards Norrahammar. There you could have a swim at Åsabadet and also find some marked MTB trail and some other great trail sections before getting on the road towards Jönköping.
Otherwise we suggest making your way to Taberg, from Lake Tahe. You will find some good fika at Konditori Rosetten. If your legs is fresh you could climb to the top of the mine at Tabergstoppen instead and get your well deserved coffee there. From here you could either make your way to Månsarp or head towards Norrahammar.
