Best route in Romania

Bucharest to Cluj-Napoca

Cycling from Bucharest to Turda was excellent. I was on quiet, paved roads most of the time. It never felt like I was doing unnecessary detours.

The views of the Transfăgărășan pass were spectacular. There were no trucks.

And there were plenty of unusual traffic: A couple having their wedding photos taken in the middle of the road, professional photographers filming from the back of moving SUV, even sheep and debris from a recent rock slide. All this made the drivers more patient with us cyclists.

For comparison, here is a group of riders who cycled a similar route 9 years ago: Medias to Bucharest
