Oulu is a beautiful city for cycling. Its cycleway network, the most extensive in Finland, covers the entire city and neighbouring municipalities.
Oulu residents are avid cyclists, and some cycle throughout the year. Winter cycling in extreme temperatures is what makes you an Oulu resident. As much as 20 percent of all trips in Oulu are made by bicycle, while the corresponding figure for the rest of the country is about 11. This goes to show that Oulu residents really do like to cycle.
Inline skaters, Nordic walkers and joggers also use the cycleways regularly.
