Espoo is just next to Helsinki (and Vantaa) there are lots of possibilities for all what you mentioned, you just need to find out.
We have biking roads here, so it will be great for cycling, in Espoo and Vantaa for example there are many lakes around and beautiful nature.

Check the cities sites:
http://english.espoo.fi
http://www.hel.fi
http://www.vantaa.fi

And here is the site of Vantaa carting center
http://www.vmkarting.com

All available also in English.

Hello,

I am not so sure about the technology bit in Espoo... Biking is fine in Espoo, provided you can rent bikes here somewhere...
The small problem with Espoo is the fact that it consists of many smaller centres and areas, like my own Tapiola; the nearby Matinkylä with the large shopping mall called Iso Omena ( Big Apple); Otaniemi with the University of Technology...
I have just listed a few places, but Espoo is an ideal place to travel around. You can travel to Helsinki either by local buses (still pretthy frequent, even though it's summer time and the timetables are modifiied); by train (depending on the area where you're going to stay).
Outside sports is ok here: tennis courts in Tapiola; the empty sports fields next to almost every elementary school; a large area ( a grass lawn) in Tapiola for outdoor soccer, frisbee etc. ( Yes, that could be it, really...)
It is possible to swim in Espoo as well as we do have many public beaches, some of them on islands at sea. If you like fishing, that, too, is possible.
I think I need to know where in Espoo you will be staying...?? Any idea yet?
Just let me know and I can see what I can do. ( I have my two nephews who know of the fishing etc in Espoo).
Kind regards,
Soili

Travel Tips for Espoo

Espoo

by Gili_S

Espoo is the big city on the west side of Helsinki. It's also famous for having the headquarters of the giant Nokia, but there is also other Finnish international companies there as: Kone, TietoEnator, Fortum, Tekla, Jippii and others. I didn't thought of any, anyhow, here is Espoo official site:

Halo ?

by diocletianvs

I haven't seen a lot of Finland, but from what I've seen this is not only a characteristic of Espoo.

With central Nokia headquarters being located in the town, the use of mobile phones is enormous. You'll have a feeling that noone talks to other person face-to-face any more. But everyone constantly speaks to one phone while sending text messages or organizing their calender on another they hold in hand. People start to address you in Finninsh, and then you realize that they are in fact talking to someone else using a handsfree set. And the constant ringing noise cannot be described.....

I had a problem with the roaming system on my mobile so I had to find the public phone somewhere. You should have seen the expression of the faces of the people that I asked for help - same as if I has asked where can I get a mail-delivery pigeon.
(At the end I found one public phone in the Cultural centre. I think it was preserved on display as a part of cultural heritage. Luckily, it was still operating, although the numbers showed the amount in Finnish Marks three years after it was abandoned as a currency).

Not so nice places..

by Kimv

Here is poor and ugly places in Finland too. Everything is not clean and beautiful.
If you want to see different Finland, take a bus and make trip to suburbs.
Bus 150 from Helsinki will bring you here..

Keilalahti

by diocletianvs

Not only the buildings in Tapiola were set in a natural surroundings of woods but also the whole new town, as well as Espoo, are set in a natural surroundings of sea shores, lakes and natural woods. This offers great opportunities for outdoor activities – from hiking and cycling to swimming and sailing.
The area of Keilalahti is one of the such preserved natural environments, and what is striking, is the fact that it is located just between towns of Helsinki and Espoo, creating a green-blue buffer zone within the larger urban environment.

A pizza apart

by nomadig about Classic Pizza Restaurant

Classic Pizza Restaurant is not a classic Finnish pizzeria with all clichés included: red and white tablecloth, a bit repulsive feelings, kebabs on the menu and so on... Instead. they serve only pizza and they know their business. None of the menu items are "traditional" choices, but more like contemporary versions of the famous pizzas.

The restaurant is located in Iso Omena mall, which is a shame as you can't get there easily from Helsinki downtown. If you happen to be there for some odd reason, check the restaurant out. There was a queue -- unheard for any other mall eatery -- as the place is quite small. Once inside, the service was swift and courteous, and the pizzas delicious. My pizza goes to the personal top-three, other two being T8 in Shanghai and California Pizza Kitchen in Emeryville, California. Not bad.
