the week before FLOW festival in Helsinki, we got to spend a few days cycling in Estonia and eating, sleeping, reading and simply doing nothing in the Finnish countryside.
In Tallinn we got to check out “JOOKS Rattastuudio”, a bike studio located in the cool area of F-Hoone / Telliskivi Loomelinnak Creative City, an old industrial area with small boutiques, pop-up stores and cafes. JOOKS Ratta studio carries Pelago , Erenpreiss Bicycles and accessory brands including Brooks and “The Hövding”. The rest of the day we explored estonian design and discovered local fashion and furniture designers. The area is easily accessible by train or a 15 minute walk from the city center.
Tallinn has a great cycle scene. When you plan a trip to the city definitely check out tallinnbicycleweek.ee for bike events and rides.
Another reason why you should cycle in Tallinn: There are plenty of good restaurants in the city and the amount of delicious food you will get to eat, makes you want to go on a ride immediately. Our favorite: Rataskaevu 16. Fresh and creative cuisine and very friendly and stylish staff. Wow, and with their home-made artisan bread they baked their way into our hearts.
