Cycling

Helsinki features a comprehensive bike path network that provides an easy way to move about the city.  Cycling is often the fastest way to cover distances under five kilometres.

Cycling routes with intensified winter maintenance

This winter, there are 75 kilometres of bikeways in Helsinki with intensified winter maintenance. We carry out this maintenance by sweeping and salting or by ploughing.

Let’s make Helsinki the third best cycling city in the world

When asked what the best cycling cities in the world are, most people will answer Amsterdam and Copenhagen. When asked to name a third city, however, they will hesitate, and no other city stands out among the answers.

Helsinki wants to change this by aiming to become the third best cycling city in the world.
