In partnership

Off-road adventure in Transylvania, for 2025!

Explore the Fagaras Mountains by Bike

We’re really excited to announce that we’ll be working closely with the team at TRIADA and the ‘Trilogy of the Trails’, to develop a 4-day epic off-road route for gravel riders and mountain bikers. The route will explore the amazing trails in and around Paltinis and Avrig, and the Fagaras Mountains (part of the Carpathians), taking you into the vast mountain forests, the open mountain meadows, and riding in singletrack heaven beneath some of the beautiful mountain peaks of Transylvania.

With Romania’s oldest mountain resort at Paltinis as the base and starting point for this ride, being only 30km from the World Heritage city of Sibiu, you’ll be able to fly here from all over the world, to take on the Trails of Triada’  at your own relaxed pace, all year long – dependent on the mountain weather of course! Yes, it’s an opportunity for gravel bikers and mountain bikers from all over the world, to challenge yourself on unique mountain trails, as you ride a future classic route, on your own epic adventure in Transylvania!

A Route for all Riders

We want this new off-road ride to be accessible to all levels of rider, and for both gravel bikes and mountain bikes. As we develop our route, we’ll be taking time to ensure that there’s sections to take you onto your own specific adventure option – chilled out trial options and some epic technical options too.

The benefit of riding here in Transylvania is that we have the largest undiscovered area of mountain forests and trails in Europe. We’re rightly described as Europe’s last great wilderness, and we’re also home to amazing cultural centres such as Sibiu – a magical, medieval city, and one of the most beautiful small cities in Europe.

We want to include ideal gravel bike specific sections, making sure that you can ride and smile all day long – for 4 whole days. And, we’ll be bringing you a selection of the very best accommodation options, trail support and local guides too. ‘On the trails of TRIADA’ will be a truly epic challenge, that will promote this beautiful mountain region, and bring it to the attention of more people, seeking to rediscover life on 2-wheels!

The Sweet Sound of Singletrack Heaven

There’s nothing finer on a mountain bike, than sweeping along sweet singletrack trails, with the rocky ground crunching beneath the wheels; or swooping through the forests on tight and twisting trails that seem endless. Thankfully, both Paltinis and Avrig have hundreds of kilometres to explore; all within easy reach of Sibiu as a great travel and logistics hub. Both Paltinis and Avrig have great accommodation options too, for all budgets.

As we develop this new and exciting project, in time for spring 2025, we’ll also be looking at the option to add an introduction ride day, making the tour a 5-day ride direct from the centre of Sibiu, warming up on the rolling trails that take you alongside the scenic Romanian countryside, as you climb into the mountains and head to Paltinis and the start of the epic ‘Trails of TRIADA’ multi-stage adventure route.

Inspiring, Encouraging & Influencing Adventure

Working closely with the TRIADA team and Tudor Oprea, this 4-day route will ensure that we continue to inspire, encourage and influence the next generation of cyclists seeking adventure. We also want to promote the amazing culture, history and countryside of Transylvania and Sibiu County – one of the most spectacular areas of Europe. The ‘Trails of TRIADA’ route will actively promote a healthy lifestyle, and encourage people to explore the countryside in a balanced way, promoting sustainability tourism. We’ve only got one world, so let’s look after it and see what it has to offer us all. Take a trip to Transylvania in 2025, and ride with Tudor and the team in Europe’s last great wilderness!

We’ll keep you posted as the project develops; and we’d also like to here from you, if you’d like to be involved and help out. A multi-day off-road route for gravel and mountain bike is also great for promoting local tourism and bringing more people to explore the mountains. Sibiu is constantly growing in international stature, as a go-to centre for travellers. Let’s make it a cultural and adventure centre of excellence for everyone to enjoy!
