Pirkka Cycling invites both active and casual cyclists to take up the challenge. Held two weeks before midsummer, there are four different routes from which to choose. Part of the Scandinavian Tour, the “Pirkka Tour” (217 kilometres) runs around Näsijärvi from Tampere via Hämeenkyrö. The “Classic Tour” (134 kilometres) has no shortage of beautiful lake scenery either. The “Family Tour” (43 kilometres) takes you to Kangasala, and “Tour Ten” (10 kilometres) is suitable for all types of bicycles.
