“The purpose of the cycling route is like from a copybook. The aim is to lower emissions because it serves as a road for work commuting, but with new tarmac surface. It is good also as a training route for young biathletes and cyclists,” stated the Horehronie Regional Organisation of Tourism, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
