Having you on this site means you want to use your bike unusual way-not commuting
from home to work. What about cycling long distance/guided cycling tours?
Take your bike, some luggage and come visit Bulgaria by bike! I will take
you on a great course by bike through the Rhodope mountain in the South of
Bulgaria. We will visit friends of mine (the muslims are the best hosts ever),
sleep at their homes and eat their food. We will be avoiding hotels in order
to get closer to people and their life as much as possible. Wild tenting is
allowed in Bulgaria. Pictures in the orange rectangular.
Another possibility is cycling along the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. Very beautiful sceneries, sea smell. Naturally on all courses we'll be cycling on streets with no or very law traffic.
Cycling through remote parts of Bulgaria will stimulate local people to stay there instead of relocating to big cities such as Sofia which is currently overpopulated. The choice you make really matters :)
If you have got any questions do not hesitate to ask me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call me at +359 898 395 777.
I will be glad to help you planning your route in Bulgaria.
