A project called CYCLOBB has been created for all cycling fans as well as for those who only wish to begin. We believe that our project will become inspiration and motivation during your planning of cycling tours in Banská Bystrica and its surroundings.
Our aim is to promote the town under the Urpin hill and its attractiveness it has to offer in cycling area. The nature there is simply worth seeing during your cycle tour. Thanks to bike lovers new cycling routes happen to arise. We hope that in the future it will be you – the cycling lovers, who will help us with the webpage creation. Therefore all of your comments and remarks are more than welcome.
We have already documented 13 cycling routes in the northeast of Banska Bystrica (Sturec, Harmanec, Donovaly, etc.). We plan to focus on routes near Kraliky, Kordiky, Riecka, Tajov and Malachov next year. Those of you who are interested could apply even today. J
The majority of recommended cycling routes are marked in our interactive map as well as official cycling maps. Some of the cycling routes are adjusted to bikers whose ride begins in Banská Bystrica or are using the cyclobus.
