Biking in Romania: Transylvania Bike Trails Network
Right in the heart of Transylvania, somewhere in between Brașov and Sighișoara, you can find all you need for mountain biking: Transylvania Bike Trails Network. The network is the biggest in Romania and comprises 100 km of trails, connecting several saxon villages to the biggest city in the area – Sighișoara. The standard of the network is really high and the surroundings are simply amazing. On top of that, there is a guest house which offers you cosy accommodation, traditional breakfast, mountain bike hire and even organized mountain bike tours. Soon, you will be able to enjoy even horse ridding over there, but I will tell you more about that in a future article. 🙂
All the trails have their origin in Bunești village, the place which hosts Bike Check Inn – the guest house I was mentioning above. From there, you will have many inter-connecting trails towards Criț, Viscri, Meșendorf, Archița and some of them further go to Sighișoara. There are many other accommodation points on the way, so that you can make a night stop at your convenience. Also, some of the villages have some small local shops, where you can buy eco-products, such as cheese, honey and preserves. But all these pieces of info, as well as a trail map with live location could be summarized in one app: TBT app. Sounds good, isn`t it?
But, as a picture is worth a thousand words, here are some pictures of the area:

And last but not least, the TBT app, available both on Google Play and App store, comprising the map of the trails, accommodation, local shops and points of interest.
