All about the trip
One of the best ways to spend a special day outdoors is to go for mountain biking. You can do it in any season provided there is no bad weather, even on snow. This will be an easy ride but do not underestimate us because this is not going to be a walk in the park. We want you to be tired at the end of the day, to still feel the saddle when you go to bed in the evening and especially we want you to enjoy this trip so much so you will want to put a mountain bike on your wish list if you do not own it already. For this trip, we chose the best possible spot: Pestera and Magura villages. These two are positioned exactly between two of the most beautiful mountains in Romania, Bucegi and Piatra Craiului so your effort will be paid off by a day-long amazing view of these beauties. We are sure, that your eyes will linger as well on the beautiful old mountain houses spread around every hilltop that you can see. Also, the plan is to share with you the tips and tricks of mountain biking, in case you do not know them already.
Do not worry if do not have your own a bike, you can rent it from us. Just let us know.
We depart from Bucharest as early as possible, 6:00 preferably, so as to make of the day as much as possible. We expect to arrive at the activity start in 3 hours or so. First, we reach Zarnesti, a small town situated just beneath the spectacular mountain of Piatra Craiului. From there we continue along a 10 km country road up to the Magura village. We spot a place to leave the cars and, after preparing ourselves, we start biking. The view is magnificent and we will have it all day long. Our intention is to cross the Magura village and reach Pestera village. This is where we leave our bikes and pay a visit to the known cave. We must because the Romanian name of the village means exactly this – the Cave.
The point of a mountain bike tour is not necessarily to make a sporting event out of it, but to cover long distances while enjoying the ride and the landscape. This is exactly what we will do. You may want to stop often to look at the amazing views as well as the beautiful old mountain houses.
We end the mountain biking session when you feel like ending it or there is no more daylight to see the road ahead of us. On the way back we will stop for a fully deserved dinner. We estimate to arrive in Bucharest by 22:00, depending on the traffic.
