Experience Coast2Coast Jutland on your bike, and ride through some of the most beautiful and unique countryside of Jutland.

You will start on the West Coast at Søndervig, and you’ll end up on the legendary Bike Track in Aarhus on the East Coast of Jutland.

The Coast2Coast Jutland is a one-day long bike challenge.

We have three distances: the 185 kilometer and the 215-kilometer routes that start in Søndervig, and a shorter route starting in Hjøllund. The 185-kilometer route has 1350 altimeters, while the 215-kilometer route has 1900 altimeters. The route starting in Hjøllund is considered a “½-Coast2Coast Jylland” (see below).

100 km social ride

If you choose the 185 or 215 KM rides, the first 100 kilometers will be a “master ride”.  The “master ride”  means that you’ll start in different starting groups according to the average speed with which you want to ride the first 100 kilometers. These “master ride” groups will be led by two “road captains”, who are responsible for the specific average speed for each group.  This “master ride” will be a no stress, pleasant and social ride. Your official race time for the Coast2Coast ride begins as you exit our “support area” (food and drink) in Hjøllund.

The Race and Hills begins

As you leave the large support area in Hjøllund after the first chaperoned 100 km, the hilly part of the race start. The last 85 or 115 km of the 185 or 215-kilometer rides, respectively, you will experience all the hills you didn’t encounter in the flat western parts of Jutland. This part of Jutland is one of the most beautiful areas in Denmark, with many hills, lakes and spectacular nature.

You decide yourself when you continue or start from the Hjøllund support area.  When you have finished eating and filled your bottles, you may proceed to the starting line and the timed part of the ride begins.

The Start and Starting Groups

You choose your Starting Group, when you register for the Coast2Coast ride. You should choose your Starting Group based on the average speed with which you want to ride the first 100 kilometers of the race.  There will be Starting Groups for the following average speed categories: 24, 26, 28 and 30 km/h. The Starting Groups with the lowest average speed will be the first to start. Each average speed category will be starting in groups of 50 riders with 5 minutes intervals. Riders are divided into the starting groups, as they arrive at the starting line.


As a new initiative, will you now be able to ride the gravel route.

The ride from the start in Søndervig to finish at Aarhus cycling track will offer a mixture of great gravel roads and small asphalt roads. Along the route will you exspirence beautiful nature such as Løvstrup and Bjørslev plantation.

The route is in total either 170- or 75 km, whence about 60 – 70% is on gravel.

The gravel route won’t be signposted, but you’ll receive a GPS-file a week before.

The gravel route wil have three “service and support areas”

First stop – after 55 km – Kibæk, at Kibæk hallen.

Second stop – after 100 km – Hjøllund, at “Dantra”

Third stop – after 135 km – Rye
