Romania’s Ministry of Regional Development and Tourism aims to start a national network of cyclo-tourism routes in picturesque areas across the country with low car traffic, according to a draft Government decision, reports Mediafax news wire.
Accessing the cyclo-tourism network will be free of free of charge. The routes will be designed to be traveled in a maximum of 12 days in the case of national objectives, up to 5 days in the case of regional attractions, and up to a day for local points of interest. Special signs will guide bikers along the routes.
This decision results from a high interest and demand for official cyclo-tourism routes in Romania, from individual tourists, cyclo-tourism associations and tourism agencies, domestic or foreign, as well as local authorities and regional development structures, continues Mediafax.
