Poplaca & Villages
A spin out to the Transylvania countryside from Sibiu – with Larisa
This short ride is reasonably flat, with a few easy climbs, aand takes you out into the beautiful countryside and villages of Transylvania, close to historic Sibiu. It’s a superb ride for an afternoon or evening, if you’re visiting the city and looking for a picturesque two-wheeled adventure.

Refreshments & Where to Stay
Sibiu is a city used to catering for tourists from all over the world. It has a wealth of accommodation options, and superb places to eat. Piata Mare is a good starting point for visitors. Click the Booking.com link on this page, to see our own options for you 🙂
Rolling hills and easy riding, with wonderful views, this is a ride to be enjoyed, as you relax and take in beautiful Romania.
1. The route which I really like to do, begins from Piata Mica in Sibiu, then it heads towards Poplaca on the Calea Poplacii.
2. Continue to Gura Riului through a very beautiful open road, with cultivated fields and hills and mountains in the backround. The views of farmland and villages in the rolling valleys are amazing.
3. From Gura Riului take the road signed to Orlat, then on to the villages of Sibiel, Saliste and then back to Sibiu via the E81 international European road.
Time then for coffee and cake in Piata Mare 😉
