  • For the main routes there is a route description in

  • The main cycling targets in Estonia

    The Baltic Sea coast (National Cycling Route No. 1in the west over the beautiful islands of Hiumaa and Saaremaa

    and the East – a meeting with lakes, forests and hills (No. 3 and No.4).

The bad news:

Even if the Estonians are doing very well, still some things are far from perfection:

  • In Estonia we may find a network of signed cycle routes not bicycle pathes:

    These routes are mainly on existing (car) roads. Heavier transport parts are not completely avoidable

  • in some regions there is still a lack in infrastructure – few places of accommodation, few food shops and of cause no restaurants

  • some roads – specially in central Estonia – are just boring, in the way „30 km straight, forest left and right, pass three cabins and next 30 km of forest“…
