500 took part in a cycle race between the City Hall and the Palace

The race is 47 kilometers long and is pedaled through car-free inner city streets, along winding forest roads on Djurgården and then on towards the Castle.

– The first person to finish ran the race in one hour and 15 minutes. But there is really no winner, because it is mainly about being able to enjoy Stockholm’s car-free streets for a few hours, says Mirjam Wolff, who is the initiator of Sthlm Bike.
