Bicycle Tour 2016 is a joint venture between Rema 1000 and Hushovd wherein the cyclist was to visit around 5 cities during the trip. It all ended on 12th of June in Oslo. This was primarily done to charge up Norway for cycling circus which is popularly known as Tour de France which started in this summer. The main organizer was Merchant Kjell Olsen and he showed a lot of excitement even before the tour could start.
