Recommendations

  • The route is completed on mountain bikes, so it’s aimed more at experienced cyclists or usual riders accompanied by instructors
  • The most part of the route goes along highways with well-shaped sideways, but a group has to be very careful in narrowing places
  • Riders go one by one at a distance of about 2 meters
  • It is strictly forbidden to stretch to the width of the road
  • Better not forget the helmet
  • It is necessary to take along extra technical devices
  • It is necessary to have a small first aid kit
  • There is no special bike fixing device in the municipal transport so if you decide to travel by municipal transport it’s necessary to agree and discuss it with the driver directly.

All bridges of the village Mirveti are very narrow and it’s impossible for garbage trucks to enter the territory, so the waste must be taken out manually.

The closest recycle bin can be found at the suspension bridge of Mirveti (in a distance of 1 km from the picnic area).
