Bicycle routes

Tips for cyclists

Turku offers plenty of interesting and convenient cycling routes all year round for home-to-work travelers, hikers and tourist alike. In Turku, you can cycle both in urban areas and in environments close to the nature. Archipelago routes are also easily accessible.

Year-round cycling is encouraged by, among other things, the approximately 12-kilometer-long winter cycling route, which is in the center of Turku and in the Kupittaa area. Thanks to brush salting, the route is also safe in the winter.

Signs and instructions related to cycling are currently being renewed in the Turku region. Three routes are ready: routes from Turku to Lieto, from Turku via Varissuo to Piikkiö and from Turku via Kaarina to Piikkiö.  A total of 12 radial routes from Turku and three circular routes will be signposted. Each route is numbered, and by following the numbers marked on the signs you will find your way.

The work is carried out in cooperation with the municipalities in the region. Read more and take a peep at examples of new signs on the Väylä office website (in Finnish)

You don’t have a bike? No worries. Grab a city bike or a rental bike. Here you will find information about collective use bikes and other means of transport. 

In the City of Turku, you can find support for cycling like maintenance services for bikes and service points for charging electric bikes. Learn more about cycling services. 

Have a smooth and save journey!
