The route around Nøklevann lake is one of the most popular bike rides in Østmarka. The road is slightly rolling and varied and offers lovely views of the lake. Places like Kattisa and Bråten are great for a dip in the lake. Less than one kilometre north of here Bremsrud is great for a break, with a view of many of Nøklevann's rock faces.

Please note that many hikers frequent this area on weekends, so please show consideration! If you prefer to ride more undisturbed, you should plan your ride in the early morning or late afternoon.
