A NEW 17-kilometre track leading from the Prešov suburb of Sekčov to the Slánske mountains was made available to the public in late April by members of the Prešov Cycling Group (PBS) Kostitras.

The track, marked in blue, will then be connected to a red long-distance cycling route, Alžbeta (Elizabeth), 113 kilometres long, which leads through forest roads and pathways all the way to the border with Hungary, the SITA newswire wrote.

Both cycling tracks are meant especially for cyclists on mountain bikes. They can stop at the newly-operating well, which is situated at the crossroads with the recently-opened silvicultural education path called Tajch.

Kostitras got the resources to open both paths from the Ekopolis Foundation, the Greenways Programme, and the Prešov Community Foundation.

Viera Štupáková, chairperson of PBS Kostitras, told the SITA newswire that tourists can detour from the cyclo-track to the ruins of Šebeš Castle, above the village of Podhradík.
