New Bike Road Guide: Adventure Routes in Transylvania 1

4,132 kilometres of adventure roads

We just received a new source of inspiration and planning: “Transylvanian Roads – a roadbook for riders.” Carpathian2WheelsGuide shares with us some of the best motorcycle roads to ride your bike in Transylvania, Romania.

The routes of this guidebook go through the forests, the mountains, on roads which connect medieval castles and tracks on the riverbanks of the large rivers from Transylvania. Sighișoara, Râșnov and Rupea Citadel, the fortified churches in Biertan and Viscri are major points of reference linked by roads on ridges, dotted with villages spectacular by their simplicity. Apuseni Mountains, Poiana Rusca, Sureanu and the Eastern Carpathian group of mountains are crossed on dirt roads full of mud and unique landscapes on each turn.
