Description

Well... a classic in Nesbyen. Sometimes very rough and stony ground - here the dampers and the technique get to work. A long straight stretch on the barnåls path invites you to go fast, while roots and rocks sharpen your concentration. No required jumps or drops, but several optional challenges along the way. The name comes from the fact that this is the first cycle path that was put into use in the network of trails we know in Østsida above Nesbyen today.

The path can be cycled from the top of Utsikten, or you can take off from Den Ravinde in the last large dosage before the dirt road Midtlivegen (as drawn here). From the dosage, the path starts with a long straight speed stretch on a barnacle path with elements of both stone and roots that sharpen concentration.

Before crossing the asphalt road, you can choose whether you want to bring a relatively large roll-out down to the road (Kyllingsklia). Crosses the tarmac and ends in a fantastic flowing section through fairly slack, open, pine forest. The trail lends itself well to everything from mountain biking to semi-shock (best with 160mm full shock/mountain biking). The last stretch goes through housing estates. Be considerate of homeowners and drive slowly and considerately here.
