Ruta per donar la volta a la península
de Jutlàndia
en sentit
horari iseguint la ruta del mar del Nord (de 6000 km). Comencem pel
centre, a Billund, on hi
ha el parc de Legoland i el seu aeroport per anar cap al sudoest, a
Esbjerg i llavors iniciar la ruta del mar del Nord en sentit horari
fins a la punta de tot de la península, a Skagen (que a Dinamarca és
converteix en la ruta Nacional danesa n.1). Desde Skagen ens
desviem
una mica per agafar la ruta Nacional n.5 de Dinamarca (Limfjord).
Llavors baixem pel centre, fins Aalborg i retornem per Aharus, on també
tenim aeroport.



Route around the Jutland's peninsula following clockwise route
from the
North Sea (between 6000 km). We start in he center in Billund, where
the Legoland park and airport to go to the southwest, and then in
Esbjerg we join the North Sea route to the top of the peninsula, Skagen
(which in Denmark is Danish National route becomes n.1). In
between we deviate a little to take the National Route 5, Denmark
(Limfjord). From Skagen we go down to the middle, Aalborg and we
head Aharus where we also have airport to go out.



SUMMARY OF THE
ROUTE


Denmark is a paradise for cyclists, and they have developed an inmense
web of bike paths, and they have marked 3 categories of routes.
National routes that crosses the country entirely, regional routes and
local routes. The most important is National Route number 1, that is
part of the great North Sea Route of Europe, than starts in Scotland
and ends in Norway. This trip starts in Billund, just in the center of
Jutland, where you have and airport. Here you can visit Legoland. We
start heading south west following some regional routes with bike paths
and secondary roads, to reach Esbjerg. Here we join the National Route
number 1, heading north and north-east all the time. The most common
landscape is to ride between the sands of the dune, that is moving
every year because of the winds, between the sea and some lakes or
cultived lands. It's also common to cross little villages of second
residences between the sands and protected by the dune from the wind.
It's also a constant to see the bunkers, built in the dunes during the
second war to protect from alliad invasion. Many of them have fallen to
the sand of the beach. You also see the struggle of the denmark people
with the sand and the wind, that reduces the cliffs and puts some
houses and roads at border of abism.

In this wild landscapes you ride next two stages, till we arrive at
Thyboron, where you take a ferry to cross the bay and then we join the
National route 5, the Limfjord. We enter in more gentle landscapes, a
little hilly between harvested fields and the Limfjord, that makes all
the north part of Jutland an island separated from the south. Another
constant are the wind mills for electricity in the horizon. You allways
see more of 5 or 6. We make here two stages till reach Blockus, once
more in the Nort Sea, and in two stages more wild than the first two of
the North Sea Route, we reach Skagen, with the very interesting Grenen
point, one of the more visited of Denmark, where the sands of two
beaches finish in and edge and where the waves of two seas fights and
crash together.

With the help of a train we reach Frederickshawn and we head to
Aalborg, a beautiful city in the Limfjord. One more stage and the help
of the train we reach Aahrus between hilly landscapes between
sunflowers, corn and other kind of planted fields. In Aharus, with many
places to visit, we finish this lonely but lovely trip in the country
of the bikes.



WHICH BIKE

The better is a trekking bike. We follow many paved cycle paths or
secondary roads, but also there are some places where you ride on the
sand of the bank, following National Route n.1.



WHEN TO GO

Best time
is late spring and summer, because of the lenght of the day, thing that
let be the stages more relaxed.



HOW TO GET THERE

Plane to Billund is the better way to start, and plane from Ahrus to
get off. But there are bus connections between the two aiports so it
increases the possible combinations.



WHERE TO STAY

Best way is to stay in DanHostels, a serie of hostels spotted in all
the country, that are relativety cheap (compared with the prices of the
country) and they have very confortable rooms.
http://www.danhostel.dk/. Caabin is also a chain of hotels
interesting. And you can find some bed&breakfasts also.



DIFFICULTIES

The route is very flat, with almost no dificulties. But the most
important is the wind. If you do this route clocwise is the better.
Wind heads mostly from south west, so all the route to Skagen is quite
easy. But when you turn down the wind can be very strong and difficults
the riding. Roads have little traffic, and there are bikelines in
almost beside all roads. And the North Sea number 1 passes to many non
paved paths, which are difficult to ride in some parts because of the
sand. Very intersting some parts when you ride directly on the beach.

IMPORTANT FACTS

Life cost is very high for european standards. With Danhostel is
easy to reduce the budged because you can cook and sleep and a
relatively low cost.

    Gran ruta que siguen parte la ruta del Mar del Norte europea. Ojo con el viento. Mejor hacerla en sentido horario, pues el viento casi siempre sopla de suroeste.

    La verdad es que desconozco el tema de alquiler. No sé si existe en Dinamarca pues todo el mundo tiene bicicleta. Es posiible que sí. Segun el precio, te sale más a cuenta traer la bici en el avión, pues la ida y vuelta suele costar un total de 100 euros.
