Rent a bike and grab Helsinki's bike pathways map to create a custom tour. There are a few major loops and many junctures to jump from one loop to the other (i.e.,'green loop', 'town loop', etc..) Plan to be out for a couple of hours. The ride is scenic and easy. We biked through Sibelius Park where we saw the Sibelius Monument and Bust of Jean Sibelius sculptures, as shown above. We also saw the Olympic stadium (where the European Championships were taking place), farmers markets, lively marinas, local neighborhoods and foreign embassies -- and zigzagged the lake via winding pathways and charming foot bridges.
