Imagine the most tranquil island on earth. Chances are you’re thinking of St. John.
Though it is the smallest of the three U.S Virgin Islands, St. John’s unspoiled beauty is perhaps the greatest found anywhere in the Caribbean.
The island is covered from north to south in marked cycle tracks and there are several cycle route maps that you can download from the Bornholm tourism website. The island even caters for physically disabled cyclists. A popular route is to cycle is along the entire coast of the island.
It has a varied landscape of dramatic cliffs, forests, gentle hills and charming fishing villages. For food lovers there is also a “Gourmet Route”, which will allow you to experience the best cuisine on the island, and while you cycle between towns you’ll be able to work off the calories you consume. Bornholm has Europe´s best network of bicycle routes. In spite of its limited size – 587 km2 – a relative modest size – it is marvellous discovering Bornholm by bike.
