Transylvanian Ride 2017

Join TENT to ride for the Romanian wilderness.

The European Nature Trust’s Transylvanian Bike Ride is a cycling adventure through the gentle alpine meadows, pastures and forests of Transylvania, transporting the riders back in time to a landscape few can imagine still exists in modern day Europe.

– RURAL ROMANIA IS A LITTLE-KNOWN DELIGHT

Calling all (fairly) fit fundraisers

There are 14 exclusive spaces on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. All riders are invited to work with TENT to secure sponsorship which can be fun and very rewarding.

The cost of the ride includes all food and drinks as riders stop to enjoy the nature, fascinating culture and fine hospitality.

 

The route takes in the gentle rolling hills, pastures and forests as well as medieval villages, boutique lodges whilst enjoying the best, local, organic and traditional food and wine.

– WE TAKE TIME OUT TO ALSO ENJOY THE FINER THINGS

The Cause

99% of European forest has been cut down and most of the large fauna has gone extinct. Of the 1% of forest remaining half of it is in Romania. This precious ecosystem containing wolves, bears and lynx is now threatened with the same forces of destruction. We have to act now to save what is left of Europe’s last precious wilderness.

The European Nature Trust offers carefully curated opportunities to cycle through this extraordinarily precious landscape whilst helping to protect it. Our wild rides enjoy the most beautiful routes through Europe’s last, great, ancient forest whilst also, crucially, raising: awareness, funds and driving action to protect and restore these truly wild places.

100% of funds raised are transferred to on-the-ground projects in Romania – protecting the forest, educating children with our Wild Kingdom buses and working with key partners to develop a new green economy that invests in, and protects, the forest.
