Vatternrundan 2014 opens for registration


The world's largest recreational bike ride, Vätternrundan in Sweden, will have a new registration procedure in place for the 2014 event.

Last year, it took just two hours and 45 minutes to fill all 21,000 places for the 300 km Vätternrundan ride when registration opened. With the high demand, the underlying IT infrastructure reached its capacity limit. While the number of places available for 2014 remains the same as the previous year, the system has now been redesigned and improved to ensure no cyclist misses out on a place due to technical hitches.
