For cyclists living abroad, we have a special offer for 2017. If you join the International group #0 (zero) you will hve the chance to take part in Gotland360 without having the lottery to depend on. Just register among the first 36 cyclists on the homepage and you will be a part of the tour
The registration is open until the very last minute of 2016 (Swedish time) or until all the groups are fullfilled. There is no stress or press to sign in, so be accurate when you fill in the registration sheet. Everyone will have equal chance.
There will be 35 different groups to choose from and in each group a maximum of 36 cyclists. Tell your friends /family members who you want to cycle with to join for example group # 27. You are welcome to join any group you wish, it doesn´t matter if you will cycle G360 (360 km), G270 (270 km) or G180 (180 km), if you will travel fast or slow or if you are a member of another bicycling club. You can see who else is in the different groups by studying the lists. Maybe you will find someone you would like to spend the weekend with, then sign in for that group.
You can join only one group. If we find out that you have joined many groups your name will be withdrawn from all of those. If you notice that you have joined in “wrong” group, please let us know so we can help you change by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few days after New Years Eve there will be a drawn which groups will have the chance to cycle Gotland360. If your group is lucky to be drawn, the whole group will be joining. If not, so is none.
The drawn will be held on Swedish Television on prime time and the lucky ones will have an email included with an invoice that must be paid within 360 hours (15 days).
If you haven´t paid during this period you will be exchanged with another cyclist who will be very excited over the possibility to cycle.
Your entry is valid only for yourself and cannot be sold or given away, just to prevent speculation. We will check before start that you are the same person that are on the list.
Welcome to Gotland360 a two day cyclosportive event around Gotland, a Swedish island located in the Baltic sea some 3 hours east by ferry from the Swedish ports of Nynäshamn or Oskarshamn. Visby, the beautiful medieval capital city of Gotland, is the start and finish for the event and the 360 km route takes us around the island on almost traffic-free roads.
The next Gotland360 will be on September 9th – 10th 2017, starting at 0800 on the Saturday morning from Visby harbour. A 75 km route will be held on an extra day for they who wish, offering you the opportunity to cycle around Ingmar Bergman´s picturesque island of Fårö on Friday September 8th. The Gotland360 organisation will provide transport from to and from Visby and full service for this bonus route.
Besides being a cycling event, Gotland360 is a culinary experience with the opportunity to sample many of the island’s delicacies at the numerous feeding stations. A banquet dinner of roast lamb is included in the entry fee on Saturday night in the village of Ljugarn where accommodation is provided for participants. If you are planning on loosing some weight while cycling Gotland360 then this event is probably not for you!
The entry fee for those wishing to cycle the full 360 km “Gotland360” is 1815 SEK, “Gotland270” 1705 SEK (long distance on Saturday and shorter on Sunday) and for those who wish to take the ”short cut” Gotland180 (180 km) the entry fee is 1595 SEK. The extra tour on Fårö on Friday costs 550 SEK extra if we provide transport to and from Visby. If you cater for your own transport it will cost 400 SEK. You can register during the whole of December.
Besides the dinner on Saturday night, the entry fee includes lunches on Saturday/Sunday, numerous feeding stations every 30-40 km, accident insurance and an exclusive Gotland360 t-shirt and medal. All you need to arrange and pay for is your travel to and from Gotland, and accommodation in Visby Friday and Ljugarn on Saturday.
