The sites are connected to each other through the genuinely built cross-country trails. The trails are designed for the beginner riders, for families and can be ridden by virtually anybody that can ride a bike. The first day is a 50km ride to Viscri through some of the former Saxon villages and in order to connect the forest trails we will visit Crit, Mesendorf and Bunesti. The electrical assistance from an ebike will make you enjoy the Transylvanian ancient forests without feeling the effort. Tour departs after you morning coffee and heads into the beech forests. During our day the tour we will take brakes to enjoy the view and visit the local fortified church. Lunch will be served in Viscri, at a traditional house. and returning to the accommodation we will discover how peaceful the Transylvanian meadows can be.

Second day takes us to Saschiz, on the marked trails. We will be riding our ebikes for around 25km, an easier route than the previous day. The first stop is at the hilltop of Daia, where we can admire the beautiful clock tower and the Transylvanian Highlands. As we will get closer to Saschiz we will enter the former Peasant Fortress, built around the 13th century. Its old walls and impressive fortification system are granted to give you an idea of harsh medieval history. Descend into the village to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saschiz, where the bell tower and the church are separated from one another. Choose from a variety of places to have lunch and ride back home with plenty of memories from this day.
