Apart from the Vattenrundan does anyone no some good cycling events/cycling groups in Sweden.
I live in Uppsala and I really want to start racing, if any one has local knowledge of sweden or uppsala about races (particularly regular local meets) and getting in to racing then please help

Hi rob,

Been a while since I lived in Sweden but svenska Cykelförbundet has some information that may be of use to you. Also check out funbeat.se as they have most races in a calendar form on here across the regions. If I think of other sites I'll let you know. Har det bra

have you tried asking in local bike shops? Does the university have anything?

In/around Stockholm I see loads of cyclists wearing Fredrikshof cycle club tops - not that far to come in http://www.fredrikshof.se/

IIRC, Frederikshof is the biggest club in Sweden, but Stockholm-based. I'll ask my mate if he knows any clubs in or near Uppsala, or where to look.

some links for you

http://www.cykelklubben.se/
http://cykelmotion.se/
http://www.cyclesport.se/


but most clubs have good ties with the LBSs in the area so that is the best place to start.

the shop I did things at sponsored a club and a few events.

have fun before it gets cold ;)
