The Cheese Route - Full Day TripThis is a one day tour that takes you away from the city noise to the green pastures where the so famous cheese comes from. No car transfer is needed for this trip.
Route : Sibiu - Poplaca - Sibiel - Săliște - Galeș - Tilișca - Sibiel - Sibiu - 77 km (48 miles)
We will start by riding along the bicycle track in Dumbrava forest, pass through a remote and picturesque gypsy village and arrive in Poplaca. From here, we'll ride on asphalt and we can make a first stop for a cold drink and some rest in Sibiel. The village is quiet and surrounded by wooded peaks, so it comes as no surprise that it has the most developed rural tourism in the region. The Museum of the Icons on Glass in the village worth a visit also.
We continue our ride until Tilișca, where we leave the asphalt and make a 10 km loop through pastures to reach the highest point of the day and our effort is rewarded by wonderful landscapes. We come back to the main road in Gales and we will return to Sibiu on asphalt, with a new stop for a late lunch optional in either Saliste or Sibiel
* The difficulty of this trip is given by its length, more than the terrain. A first break for a soft drink will be made in the first part of the day, and a lunch stop is recommended on the way back.
** Shorter routes that imply car transfer on the way back can be discussed.
