Description

Bicycle trip from the city centre to the bathing spot Nordstrand Bad.
This is the shortest and easiest cycling route from the city centre to a nice place to go for a swim. Nordstrand Bad is in a well-sheltered location and cannot be seen from the road. Thanks to poor parking conditions it doesn't really get overcrowded here.

Starting point: The intersection of Kongsveien and Konows gate.

Route: Follow the pavement/cycle route south along Mosseveien.
Roughly 500 metres after passing Ulvøybrua (the bridge to Ulvøya), look for a side road that curves sharply to the right before you reach Furubråtveien.

Distance: 4.7 km
Surface: asphalt
Facilities at the end point: toilets, 100-metre stone pier
