|Halvvättern is a 150 km long recreational ride that starts and finishes in Motala. The course follows the beautiful lake Vättern southward, turns north east towards Skänninge and then back to Motala. The course goes through a varied and beautiful landscape. Anyone 15 years old or older (or who turns 15 during 2012) may participate.
Because Halvvättern is a recreational ride, no winners are listed. Instead cyclists wear a timing chip that registers their individual times. These times can be seen under Results. Everyone can check what time they started, when they passed the check points and what time they arrived at the finish in Motala.
Cyclists who complete the course receive a medal at the finish. Cyclists finishing in less than five hours (men) or six hours (women) receive an additional plaque.
Halvvättern is part of the Klassikerhalvan series of events.
