Routes near Tallinn

Postitus Postitas MattiM » 08. 06. 2018. 07:07

Hello!

I'm coming to ride in Tallinn on Monday and would need your help with route planning. Checked ridewithgps briefly but could not find anything. What would you recommend? Both road and gravel are preferred and 100+ km. Starting and ending in Tallinn. Thank you for your help!

Something like this perhaps:
https://www.google.ee/maps/dir/Tallinn/ ... 369608!3e0

The shore-side route is really popular among road cyclist, it is 100% tarmac. There are a few short climbs aswell. The tarmac is good, but close to Tallinn, the traffic is really heavy. But don't worry as there is pedestrian/cyclist lane up until Vääna. Watch out for joggers, rollerskaters and babymamas.

Hi,

Strava heatmaps would be a good startingpoint.

You may need slightly more balls riding in Estonia than you need in Finland or Spain. Be stable, predictable, don't assume your legal right for priority will always be honoured by drivers.

One solid option is to go West towards Paldiski by road along the coast like described by martr.

I ride mainly West and SW from Tallinn, sometimes South. Basically all roads are rideable (especially when gravel is OK) and there are endless combinations for 100+ km routes. Just you may prefer to avoid certain roads/sections marked with single digit in red box on Google maps.

Hi!

Check weekend rides in my Strava account. On those roads is not too heavy traffic.
