10 km of trails – from beginner to expert
Right above the city, between the 1400 elevation point and the lower station of the Gondola, you can discover our bike resort with the four developed downhill, all mountain and XC tracks that total together over 7 km of trails and forest roads, as well as all the amenities related to these disciplines: a modern gondola lift installation, a trails map, a tools panel and a bike-wash stand.
Sinaia has been part of the downhill scene starting from the ’90s, with some of the first downhill events being held in the royal town: Kamikaze Downhills, Gravity Jam or Stepdown Challenge. These events were organized on improvised trails, with minimum safety measures, signalization and almost no approvals from the authorities. 2010 was however a major turning point for riding, with numerous conflicts between riders and authorities from the Bucegi National Park. From 2013, after more than fifteen years from the first downhill events in Sinaia, Transport Urban Sinaia made great efforts to shift the mindset of local authorities regarding this cycling discipline: opening the first bike resort in Romania served by a cable installation. In the year 2013, we opened two bike trails – Happy Bear Trail and Old School Trail and in 2015 we developed Easy Breezy. In June 2016, we inaugurated Fairy Trail, the newest member of the Bike Resort Sinaia family.
The trails vary in style and degree of complexity, as they have been conceived in order to be ridden by a various range of riders possessing different levels of skills. The information signs are displayed throughout all trails, showing the riding direction at crossroads, as well as the name of the trail and its degree of difficulty. Many trail sectors which seem difficult can be avoided by bypasses. These bypasses are marked with a color according to their degree of difficulty. Thanks to these bypasses, the trails become accessible to a larger segment of riders and most of them can be ridden with a hard-tail mountain bike.
Showing the rightful respect towards nature, Bike Resort Sinaia invests a huge amount of time and passion into mountain biking and aims to stay the same wonderful playground dedicated to all mountain-bike riders.
