Another chicken strips fixer, lots of corners great asphalt and visibility, low traffic, mountain canyon with nice views.
One great road to fix any eventual chicken strips you may have. Lots of corners, great asphalt and visibility, low traffic, great scenery sea and mountain. A small detour in Bigradska National Park (and lake) for a superb view.
Great mountain plateau view, large number of corners, the road is very narrow and tiring, but worth taking only for the scenery.
Breathtaking view over the Kotor fjord like, mountains and very twisty road down to Kotor. This road (not necessarily the road on the map) takes you from Cetinje - through the Lovcen National Park - to Kotor.
Corners only, with usually nice scenery and some great views over the mountains near Pamporovo, superb Antonivanovci lake. If it wasn't for the rather poor asphalt, I would have rate it an exceptional road for the view and corners. Pay attention to sand on the road, especially after rain, as a good portion of the road does not have rain ditches. Nice to visit: Siroka Laka.
Veliko Tarnovo â€“ Gurkovo is a nice combination of corners, going through the Republika pass (â€œprohodâ€ = pass) at 700 meters altitude, a fun road with no spectacular scenery and excellent asphalt in 2011. Gurkovo to Sliven is boring, mostly straight. Sliven to Stara Reka to Kotel takes you over the Vratnik pass (1,000 meters) and Kotlenski pass (700 meters) with nice scenery and acceptable asphalt. Good accommodation you may find in Arbanassi (touristic village, located about 2 km. out of Veliko) or in Veliko. You may want to visit Veliko Tarnovo and its fortress, as well as Arbanassi.
Exhilarating, a lot of twisties over the Shipka pass (altitude about 1,100 meters), pity it is a short road! On the top you may want to go to the mausoleum for a great view over the other side of the mountain, or even take the secondary road with poor asphalt, for a great view. As of 2011: Southern side with excellent asphalt, Northern side with good asphalt, so it may be more fun riding South to North.
DN67C is No. 2 Romanian biking road in terms of both scenery and turns (Transfagarasan (DN7C) is still number one). Spectacular high alpine view ("trans" = crossing the). Newly asphalted road, about 5 km. are still waiting to be asphalted in summer of 2011, but no problem even now, as the road is already prepared. Check for availability, it should be opened from June 1. You may find accommodation in Ranca (relatively new ski resort). There is an alternative, from Sugag - Dobra - Jina - Saliste - Sibiu, which is more atractive from scenery point of view and it will be more attractive also for corners, once the road is finished (curently prepared to be asphalted). Near Novaci you may want to visit "Polovragi" cave - in the village with the same name or "Muierii" (that is Women's) cave.
The Transfăgărăşan (trans (over, across) + Făgăraş) or DN7C is the highest (~2200m) and most dramatic paved road in Romania. Built as a strategic military route by Nicolae Ceauşescu, the 110 km of twists and turns run North to South across the tallest sections of the Carpathian Mountains, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, and the cities of Sibiu and Piteşti.
Exhilarating fast, long corners, with good asphalt, always a joy to ride. No particular scenery (hills, forest). You may want to visit Sighisoara medieval fortified city (in the center).
Although a secondary road, usually unknown to foreign tourists, this is No. 1 biking road in Romania for its all sorts of countless twisties (there is only one road passing by Anina that may challenge its first rank in this respect), with good asphalt. Medium scenery. Maintain some reserve for in-coming drivers possibly cutting lanes. Ride during week days, because heavy traffic is diverted on this road during weekends. You may want to visit the old city of Brasov (in the center â€“ ask for â€œPiata Sfatuluiâ€ or â€œBiserica Neagraâ€). Enjoy it!
