trails in Slovakia – surfaces you will encounter
All our Slovak bicycle tours follow mostly a solid surface (tarmac), and are well suited for hybrid bikes. There are a few short sections with fine gravel or compacted dirt surface. If you are used to riding a road bike on poor surfaces, you can feel free to take a road bike here as well.
In the Slovakia there is a dense network of backroads ideal for cycling. Their surface is of
good quality and there is little traffic. All our routes follow the 2nd or 3rd class roads or dedicated bike paths (mainly along the Danube river).
Should you cross a busy road, the route instructions will always warn you in advance.
tours in Slovakia - daily sections
The average daily riding distance at our tours is about 50 km / 32 miles. The Danube road bikes tour daily average is 95 km / 59 miles. Our desire is to offer a balanced, but not a boring tour, so some riding days might be quite short with ample time to relax and do sightseeing, other a bit longer to enjoy the ride itself.
