In the summer of 2016 I had a great time hosting travel journalist Will Hide for a few days of cycling in Transylvania. Like most folks who visit this special place with us, Will was keen to soak up local curiosities, eat and drink well and work up a bit of a sweat on the bike.

He seemed to enjoy himself and I was so pleased. His excellent article was published in The Telegraph last Saturday and he does a brilliant job of describing the place and what we do here.

To paraphrase, Will says that “the cycling here isn’t that tough, but you’re on the move most of the day and there are enough uphill sections to require a decent level of fitness. Couch potatoes need not apply, but on the other hand you don’t need to be a pro.”

I couldn’t have put it better myself. You can read the full article here and if you are inspired to come and have a look for yourself, get in touch.
