A stage along the beautiful coast at Bohuslän, the inner filet of the Swedish Summer. The start will be directly by the sea at wonderful Möllesund on the island Orust. The riders will cross Orust on the way north and coming to the mainland over the bridge at Sundsandvik and the riding west of the city of Uddevalla.

The ladies will get in contact with highway E6 for the first time at Munkedal, but they are turning into road 172 towards the coastal town of Lysekil. They will see the sea again at Gerlesborg. Then they will follow the coast northbound through holiday resorts like Hamburgsund and Fjällbacka.

Next holiday destination is Grebbestad with Sportshopen, the biggest sports shop in Scandinavia. The last part will be inland from Tanumshede following the old E6 north all the way to the finish in Strömstad. The peloton will enter the border city from the south passing Daftö Camping, several times voted one of Sweden’s best.

The riders will turn right on the ring road not entering the center of the city. At cross between the ring road and Karlsgatan they’ll have a 90 degrees left turn before the 500 meters to the finish line just by the local sports stadium.

There are no final laps in Strömstad.
