Vejle and surroundings - by bike around Danish history is written by Jens Skovgaard Andersen.

Throughout the story from Egtvedpigen to Olafur Eliasson

Vejleegnen is Denmark cycling area number one. They think so themselves, and we can only agree with them. The beautiful natural areas with lots of bicycle routes, which are easy to follow, the hilly landscape that makes you stand on the pedals and not least the historic surroundings, which provide plenty of opportunities for exciting and educational stops along the way - it's all part of the package in beautiful Vejle and surroundings.

Wavy fields with grain and cows, dense coniferous forests, cozy lakes and winding streams accompany you on the bike ride, and the hilly landscape offers many impressive views of the area.

That Vejleegnen can be something special for both cyclists and cyclists is emphasized by the fact that Tour de France will come through the area in 2022, when the whole cycling world comes to Vejle. Also in 2021, there are good visits when the Danish championships are run based on Give.

Across the region you will find companies that can help with patching, bike passes, water and toilets - they are gathered under the umbrella Bike Friends Vejle.

On the way around the routes, you can not avoid meeting Danish history all the way from Egtvedpigen from the Bronze Age to modern architecture in the harbor in Vejle, which world-renowned architects such as Henning Larsen and Olafur Eliasson are behind. In between, you can meet both Harald Blåtand and Madam Blå and treat yourself to both world-class whiskey and homemade organic ice cream.

All this is even just a taste of what awaits you on the trip around Denmark's number one cycling area. Tighten the bike helmet and take the family under your arm - now the bike ride starts.
