Did you know that Oulu has over 900 km of pedestrian and cycling paths? Or, that one in five trips in Oulu are made by bicycle in the Spring, Summer, and Autumn months, and even in the winter more than 1 in ten trips are made by bike? (Euronews; Visit Oulu).

If you are interested in exploring these cycling paths in the summer (and winter) but don’t know how to cycle yet, then sign up for the City of Oulu 3-day bike school for beginners which takes place on the 27th, 28th and 29th of May, and will last for one hour each day.

Please only sign up for one group, and please cancel your participation if you cannot attend as places are limited to 10 participants per group.
