The Gota canal is 190.5 km long. The canal stretches from Sjötorp on Lake Vänern's eastern shore through it's highest point (91.8 meters above sea level) at Lanthöjden west of Viken via Bottensjön to Vättern, and further via Boren, Roxen and flows then into the Slätbaken, between Söderköping and Mem in Östergötland.
In total, Gota canal has 58 locks. It is the largest construction project ever. Gota Canal is a sister canal to the Caledonian Canal in Scotland, which was also designed by Thomas Telford.
The canal is sometimes called "Sweden's blue ribbon" and many are the sailors who made it through the canal, but no one has ever cycled along the canal.
In autumn 2016 team members from Sustainable Racing Team leave for experiencing and documenting the canal a little bit from the side.
The finish takes place at by the City Hall in Stockholm
