This is an epic ride into the hills, with a long and steep start. However, you’re more than rewarded, with an epic and extremely long descent through the hills and forests. The views over the mountains are spectacular, and you’re also close enough to historic Sibiu, a World Heritage Site city, to make it your base for a great cycling vacation.
A great days biking exploration and adventure, into the forested mountains of Transylvania. Lots of climbing, rewarded by epic descents
Transylvania and Romania have some of the most spectacular and beautiful mountains in the world. Best of all, they’re accessible to adventure seekers, and I love living here 🙂 This mtb trail follows the TransBai trail, a highway in the Baiului Mountains, a truly magical wilderness.
Our U.K. Gravel Bike Coast to Coast route starts at the beautiful coastal hamlet of Ravenglass, before entering Eskdale and the Lake District.

VTOPO launched the gravel route guide at the end of last year for the Departement de Vaucluse, probably better known for its Provence region, renowned for the fields of lavender and the classic climbs of Mt Ventoux.
