Cycling in Northern Hungary. Lovely.
Description Activity: Cycling from Gyongyos to Tokaj via Eger.
CA rank. My husband's rank. This rank is for folks who are hard core cyclists. My Honey competes at least once a month, and rides Colorado's foothills or mountains on a weekly basis.
JW rank. My rank. This rank is for folks who are married to hard core cyclists. I only dust off the bike for scenery that warrants a bruised bottom.
CA rank. 5. The climbs were eternal. Good work out.
JW rank. 7. (Barely) within the realm of reason. Challenging yet manageable.
CA rank. 8. Nice. Paved. Not much traffic.
JW rank. 7. Based on my reading, the roads easily exceeded expectations. A dedicated shoulder would have been appreciated.
SCENERY & OTHER PERKS
CA rank. 7. Nice. Green. I liked the accessibility of the castle ruins. And the wine-tastings.
JW rank. 7. Nice. Green. I enjoyed the intimate access to life beyond Budapest. And the wine-tastings.
ACCOMMODATIONS ALONG THE WAY
CA rank. 6. Most spots made satisfactory and convenient accommodations for our bikes. A few didn't.
JW rank. 8. I've always wanted to stay in a castle. On this cycling trip, I was able to stay in three. Definitely worth the bruised bottom.
Equipment: We brought our road bikes and were infinitely grateful that we did. We backpacked this trip, but if we were to do it again, we would bring our BOB trailer. Equip your bike with lights. The roads don't offer any.Related to:
- Castles and Palaces
- Wine Tasting

But take more time and cross Europa !
Equipment: Hungarian people use a lot bikes. If you bring regular mountain bike you are sure you can find everything to fix it if you need it. You can even buy a bike there, there are cheap ones in Budapest.
