The Trondheim postal road runs through magnificent nature - over fjords and mountains, along water and over rivers. The poastal road is like a living history book, despite the fact that many magazines have been curled and torned away. Many competent cyclist has described the well-preserved section of the Trondheim postal road between Hyllestad and Fjaler as one of the most exhilarating cycling experiences in the country.
There were originally 19 stone bridges on the route between Dale and Leirvik, and many of them are still standing as proud and impressive examples of early dry masonry. There are only a few places along the 40 km stretch between Dale in Fjaler and Leirvik in Hyllestad where the surface is so uneven that it is best to push a bike rather than ride it. Occasionally it is necessary to join the asphalted RV 57 road, but most of the route is free from cars and idyllic.
