Nice climb, first half asphalt. The steep section just before Myrdal is indeed dangerous, especially on the descent. Not doable with road bike. At least 35mm tyres needed. Beautiful scenery. And you can continue to Finse and beyond. If you don't have a bike with you, you can rent one in Flåm. ... read more

Mooie klim, eerste helft asfalt. Het steile stuk vlak voor Myrdal is inderdaad gevaarlijk, met name in de afdaling. Met racefiets niet te doen. Minstens 35mm banden nodig. Schitterend landschap. En je kunt verder doorrijden naar Finse en verder. Als je geen fiets mee hebt, kun je die huren in Flåm.

Idd. two-thirds of the climb is asphalt. Rest gravel. Do NOT do the gravel part with a road bike. Otherwise very careful!!! Tourists can rent bikes for downhilling. Chances of totally inexperienced cyclists (Inc children) who do not know what they are doing.

Idd. Tweederde klim is asfalt. Rest gravel. Deel gravel NIET DOEN met racefiets. Verder erg opletten!! Toeristen kunnen fietsen huren om te downhillen. Kans op totaal onervaren fietsers(Inc kinderen) die totaal niet weten wat ze doen.

I would say approx two thirds of the ride is on tarmac. Running alongside the river and railway, it is a lovely ride. The gravel kicks in at a railway crossing but is nice and compact. A lit tunnel ( amazing in the middle of no where), past the end of the zipp wire and then the fun begins! Hairpins almost all the way to the railway station. The surface looked to be recently done with white gravel. This section is brutal! I had a gravel bike with 35 width tyres and about 30psi. There is no way a road bike on road tyres is getting up this climb! Coffee shop in the station. Decent is fab but you have to be very careful on those hairpins! A number of people take the train up and come down on hired bikes. Some are not in control!
