Cycling rules in Sweden.
You will need to make sure your tandem or cycle is road-legal on arrival. Strict safety rules are enforced with big fines. All bikes must have working brakes and a functioning bell; if you’re cycling when it’s dark you’ll also need lights, as well as side reflectors. Children aged 15 and under must wear a helmet (and you should too!).
