Mountain biking in the Transylvanian Alps, Romania

It was a long wait, but totally worth it. Scheduled to take place in June 2020, the Transylvanian Alps tour with a small group of brave Belgian mountain bikers finally happened in September 2021. Ciucaș, Baiului, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Mountains offered us some unforgettable days.

It was our job and honor to guide the group up to the highest point of Romania, on Moldov… (>>>)
