The fastest riders do it in just about 40mins, while normal riders take an hour or so. A beginner may take around an hour and a half.

Need to Know
There are some natural or built in technical features.
To make sure ALL riders can ride Hammer Bakker, there is always a B-Line/Easy line, marked with a GREEN arrow. The technical lines are marked with a RED Arrow.
The green line is only slightly slower than the technical line.
Its ALWAYS a good idea to step of the bike and SEE the technical feature before you ride it, if its your first time.
From Vodskov church, you travel into the forrest (north) on the road called Gennem Bakkerne.
When the road splits into a Y, with paved on right and gravel on the left, u take the left.
