The Slow Cyclist: Our trips are about more than just cycling. You will delve into the region’s fascinating history and have the chance to spend time with its people. Transylvania is a hilly place and the distances we cover, although not huge, are still not inconsiderable. So although you don’t need to be Chris Froome to complete this journey, you should have good general fitness and be comfortable riding a bicycle on dirt roads and paths. When you see something interesting, we encourage you to stop and take it in rather than racing by. In every group we welcome to Transylvania there are novice and experienced cyclists, and those at every level in between. Our guides are skilled at spotting your skill and confidence level and reacting accordingly. If this means splitting the group so that experienced cyclists take on a tougher route, that’s fine. If it means that one morning you’re just not up to a long cycle, let us know. This is your holiday and we’re here to make it a memorable one. 

We also have two fantastic runner's up prizes: a sumptious 100% merino Jura Jersey of your choice; and an effortlessly chic Apres Velo t-shirt.

We like to think that Slow Cyclists are curious, open-minded travellers with some juice in their legs. They love seeing the world change surreptitiously under their wheels. Sometimes they ride hard but often they're distracted by the food, history and people that make many parts of the world so special..."
