Public transport - Skagen to Hirtshals

What is the best way of public transport from Skagen to Hirtshals if we also need to bring our bicycles ? I know the train option via Fredrikshavn and Hjørring, but are there any buses that short-cuts ? Something via Ålbæk or Tversted ?

There are usually direct buses in the summer months, but I doubt they will also carry your bicycles.

It is only a 50 km. ride, so you could consider using the bicycles?

Thanks to both.

The plan is of coarse to use the bicycles, but in addition to some showers, the weather forecasts predicts rather heavy head-winds this week-end. Thats why a fall-back would be convenient.

I wish the politician with the slogan "Tail-wind on every bicycle path" had won the election :-)

Bus no. 99 covers the distance Skagen-Hirtshals-Hjørring-Blokhus.

The bus will take your bicycle along for a fee , if they have enough space in the trunk - which they most likely have. You will have to pay the price of 4 zones for the service per bike.

Bus 99 is only running from 30 June to 10 August.

Thank you very much for trying to help me. We will probably start earlier and ride our bikes at a slower pace.
