On Andersön there are many nice barbecue areas and opportunities for swimming on a hot summer day. From Badhusparken in central Östersund, it is about 19 km of easy road and you follow cycle paths out to the bridge Vallsundsbron and further towards Orrviken and follow the signs to Andersön. In the forest there are also two shorter trails with jumps, curves and bridges.
If the jump feels a little too challenging, there is always an easier way past. It is recommended to use a mountain bike or BMX bike and of course to wear a helmet. As the area is always open to everyone, all cycling also takes place at your own risk.
To Frösö Strand you can easily cycle from Badhusparken in Östersund along the cycle path that is marked over the walking bridge and then turn left towards the bridge Vallsundsbron.
Then you can cycle along the cycle path towards Mjällestigen on Öneberget with its ancient castle. In this area there are many nice places to stop for a picnic, either on a meadow or down by lake Storsjön, where there are also fireplaces to use.
Minnesgärdet is not far from the city center of Östersund.
From Badhusparken you cycle along the harbor on the road Storsjöstråket and after approx. 2 km you´ll arrive at Minnesgärdet where there is a fireplace and seating. You can also continue cycling along a gravel road towards Odensala or choose the trail cycling route that goes closer to the beach.
Along this road there is also a scene for orchids and later you will come to nice camps and very nice views of the mountains Oviksfjällen.
Bynäset is located on Frösön a bit beyond Frösö Park Hotel you can either start your tour from Badhusparken, it is about: 12 km country road. You can also start the bike ride from Bynäset if you have a car with a bike rack. Once at Bynäset, you can choose to cycle around Bynäset, or choose to walk around a 7 km long path. The path can be cycled on – you should keep in mind that there are a lot of roots, so you may be required to lead the bike at certain sections.
It is well worth walking around Bynäset, where a wonderful view spreads out over lake Storsjön and the mountain chains of Oviksfjällen.
There are plenty of places for picnic, barbecues and cooling baths.
