Bike & Paragliding in Transylvania, the Dracula land!


Transilvania

Transylvania is by far the most romantic Romanian province. Even its name evokes images of mountain peaks rising to the sky above wooded valleys and crystal clear streams, images of legendary castles and memories of a troubled history and for sure, name of Dracula. 
Transylvania derives its name from the Latin expression -Trans Silva -what means -Country beyond due forest- covered with forests surrounding mountains, as we shall see, this area so important for Romania and even a part of Europe.

Rupea fortress, as appears to us today, covers an area of nearly 11 ha with walls, towers and courtyards. Due to the dominant position they occupy is a remarkable presence from a distance. Despite some speculation advanced by different authors, it is certain that the area was used in prehistory. Year 1324 is his first documentary records.

Near career and trees are known "columns of basalt", another attraction for tourists Racosul. 

Viscri - The village looks like a fortress. The houses are stuck together with large gates and windows raised a few meters above the ground. Viscri is a settlement founded by the Saxons called the king of Hungary eight hundred years ago to defend the kingdom's border. King gave ground here and more than 500 such villages were founded on the border of Transylvania to hinder the Turks. Now this village is on the list of UNESCO monuments. http://www.viscri-info.ro/index.html

Who we are?

We started slowly to ride through the woods around the town and frankly, it started to love it!  Unfortunately was hard to find the company, this need was the idea of this site. We are trying to group more passionate or just beginners in the MTB rides and together to discover the pleasure of pedaling by nature, the liberty gave the cycling and by the sports. 
We organize cycling tours in several areas in Romania, and in the future our goal and wish is to bring the tourists in beautiful areas of this country. The sales experience is recommending us, we are confident that we will find passionate fans of bikes and together we will have short tours (weekend) or longer, which will involve logistics, accommodation, mapping. We strongly encourage cycling, encourage outdoors activities. A “Bikesensation” project is to promote cycling for children and youth. We are planning collaboration with schools to take the kids away from computers and teach and guide to cycling.
