Details

Cycling guidebook to the Danube Cycleway exploring the route from Budapest to the Black Sea, the more adventurous second part of the Danube, suitable for most abilities and bike types. The river route starts in Hungary and continues into Serbia and Bulgaria before ending at Constanta in Romania. The Danube Cycleway is also part of EuroVelo 6 (EV6).

This is the second of two volumes describing the Danube Cycle route, a 1717km cycle route following the lower part of the Danube, Europe's second longest river. Volume 2 describes the route from the vibrant Hungarian capital of Budapest through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and Romania to the river's delta on the shores of the Black Sea. Cycling is generally level with a few gentle gradients, mostly on quiet country roads or riverside flood dykes. but it is still a challenging ride due to the lack of tourist infrastructure, particularly in Romania. The 32 stages vary from 30–100km, with some longer excursions, and surfaces are mostly asphalt and in good condition, suitable for hybrid or touring cycles.

Cycling infrastructure is generally good in Hungary, Croatia and Serbia. In Romania, where there is no waymarking and often long distances between places to sleep and eat, this guidebook gives a detailed route description and a listing of all places offering accommodation. 

En route you will see spectacular gorges, medieval fortresses, poignant memorials to the recent Yugoslav civil war, vineyard-clad hillsides and rural areas where crops are still planted and harvested by hand and the main means of transport is the horse and cart. Off-route excursions enable short visits to be made to Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine and the Danube delta. This guidebook includes maps for each stage at a cycle-friendly a scale of approximately 1:150,000. It includes full details of alternative wet-weather routes, information on facilities, history, culture and sights encountered en route, and a comprehensive set of appendices giving further information to keep you cycling all the way along Europe's second longest river. Also included are maps for each stage at a cycle-friendly a scale of approximately 1:150,000, full details of alternative wet-weather routes, information on facilities, history, culture and sights encountered en route, and a comprehensive set of appendices giving further information to keep you cycling all the way along Europe's second longest river.

    cycle touring; also watersports and angling

  • Centres
    this is a long point-to-point route with no particular bases
  • Difficulty
    although the route is mostly level, with a few gentle gradients, it is a challenging ride due to the lack of tourist infrastructure, particularly in Romania. There are long distances between places offering accommodation and refreshments, almost no tourist offices or cycle repair shops, and very few rural Romanians speak west European languages. There are long stretches in Hungary and Serbia along unsurfaced flood dykes, although alternative routes are given to allow you to avoid these stages. Otherwise surfaces are mostly asphalt and in good condition, suitable for hybrid or touring cycles
