Be careful when crossing Sattmark Bridge, it is narrow and there is no cycle path.
At the ferries, please follow the directions of the ferry loading staff. Normally cyclists are loaded and unloaded last.
In Nagu cars tend to come in bursts according to the ferry arrivals. It can be a good idea to wait at a bus stop for the cars to pass and then enjoy the peace of the road.
If you are in a large group, please keep spaces in the group to make it easier for the cars to pass.
On smaller winding roads, please remember that cars can appear unexpectedly from both directions, cycle with care.
There are some steep slopes on the cycle paths, please watch out for other users and limit your speed.
