Panorama picture from Sandnes Municipality in Norway




LURAVIKA

Sandnes is situated centrally at the innermost point of Gandsfjord. In 1892, two brothers, Jakob and Lars Øglænd, decided to produce the new means of transport of the day: the Velocipede.

Many bicycles have been produced over the years, and if you would like to study development over the past 100 years, you can visit Jonas Øglænd Bedriftsmuseum. Or, for a reasonable price, you can rent a bicycle and go exploring on your own. Few towns are as bicycle friendly as Sandnes.
