If you are interested in cycling tours in Romania, you need to know that Transylvania offers the best opportunities for biking enthusiasts of all ages. From low traffic roads to beautiful single trails that connect the Saxon villages, this historical region is rich in century old fortifications and churches.
If you’re looking to ride your bike through picturesque villages and meet the locals, the South-Eastern part of Transylvania is the best choice. There are a lot of scenic country roads that go through the rural landscape and offer you the possibility of visiting century old medieval settlements with fascinating heritage.
Riding a bike can be the most pleasant experience of your life or the worst, depending on the decisions you take.
If you don’t have enough experience in riding a bike, practice more. Improve your skills. Practice, practice, practice.
Always choose a bike size that fits you. Never buy or rent a bicycle that’s too large or to small for you. Accidents can happen and you’ll never ride at your maximum potential.
Choose a bike that is made for the type of terrain you’re riding on. Picking a road bike for forest trails is like driving a Formula 1 car on offroad.
Before booking a cycling tour or if you’re just going somewhere on your own, read every information about the tour, the type of terrain, the techincal aspects, the difficulty level.
Always wear a helmet, even if it looks funny. Better look goofy for a few hours than being fed with a spoon for your entire life, while paralyzed.
Respect nature, wherever you go. Don’t litter, don’t pick flowers, leave everything in place.
Avoid cotton clothing while cycling. Choose a gear that allows perspiration to be evacuated and fast drying materials.
While riding on public roads, respect the law. Yes, this includes not drinking alcohol. Leave this for the end of the ride.
Always respect the other participants. Never do something that might put them or yourself in danger.
Always keep a smile on your face.
