The mountains around Lesja invites to biking, where fine dirt roads and dry weather makes the paths easily accessible. The old tradition of mountain farming has resulted in many great trails made by people and animals. For mountain bikers and hikers it is a real treasure waiting to be discovered .
Drive off E136 in Lesja center, down past the church. Turn off Vestsidevegen beyond Prestgardsbrua. Drive about a km and park by the sign to Avdemsetre and Hovda.
The road up towards Avdemsetre is a bit heavy to ride but offers a funny cycling downhill. Nearly at the top you will get to a crossroad at the municipal water intake. Here you can choose to either go straight forward to Avdemsetre or take to your right hand side towards Hovda.
