More features to come

“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.

Relaxing away from roads with cars is also important, that is another reason why it is suitable for families.

New features will be added – such as relaxing spots and shelters in case of rainy weather, perhaps campsites.
