Cycling from Helsinki to Porvoo

The best route for cycling to Porvoo goes a bit north, following the route of the old King’s road (Kuninkaantie). A week ago, Jonna, Jarkko and I took the bikes and went to Porvoo, returning on the magnificent old boat J.L. Runeberg. Here are some pics from that route.

This one has surely taken centuries of wind and rain

J.L. Runeberg

The classic J.L. Runeberg is an excellent choice for the trip back to Helsinki. They take bikes too.
