Cycling in Romania

Romania's vast landscapes and steep mountains attract not only hikers and mountaineers, but also cyclists and mountain bikers with a wide variety of track needs. While Transylvania is characterised by gentle hills and the Danube cycle path has only very slight gradients over 1075 kilometres, the Southern Carpathians, the so-called Transylvanian Alps, have steep pass and serpentine roads.
