About us

Learn more about us!

Welcome to the Mountainbikeskolan and Kafé Källtorp! Our farm is located in the middle of Hellas, just a short distance from the center of Stockholm. Mountainbikeskolan is a course center with a focus on cycling, gardening and good food. Here you will find an orangery with its orchards, a garden, a bike park and a garden café. With us you can rent mountain bikes and gravel bikes. We are happy to organize parties and corporate events. We look forward to your visit with us!

Mountainbikeskolan was founded in 2014 with the aim of providing excellent mountainbiking courses. At the time, we rented the neighboring farm Hellasgården, but had a dream of our own mountainbike center. In 2019 it became reality, we found our dream farm and so close, only 700 meters away, an oasis and a diamond in the rough.

Mountainbikeskolan not only offers mountainbike courses, but has become the natural stop for many people who like the “lovely vibe”, gardening and good food. Mountainbikeskolan is located in the middle of the amazing natural area known to many as Hellas, famous for its rocks, lakes and beautiful scenery. Mountainbikeskolan is just a block away from Stockholm’s subway station, Slussen.

You are welcome to visit us!

FOUNDERS

Jenny & Daniel Buckard

Daniel came up with the idea of starting Mountainbikeskolan around 2012. He loved then, as he does now, technical cycling in Hellas. He also competed extensively in the “Långloppskuppen”. Before taking up mountainbiking, Daniel ran the production company Redfilm and worked in film for many years. Basically, Daniel is a trained opera singer, having studied in Milan, Vienna and the Stockholm Opera Academy.

Jenny is a trained garden designer and gardener at Capellagården and Dacapo, a craft school in Mariestad. After her studies, Jenny has designed and developed many gardens through her former employer, Vagn Ekeroths trädgårdsutveckling.

Jenny’s interest in mountainbiking was sparked when she lived in Åre in 2000 and tried Downhill for the first time. At the time, she worked at Kretsloppshuset in Mörsil with plants, animals and café activities, which has many similarities with Kafé Källtorp and Mountainbikeskolan.

Jenny and Daniel are joint owners of the company Stockholms Mountainbikeskola AB.

Warmly welcome to visit us, hope to see you soon!
