The main cycling targets in Estonia
The Baltic Sea coast (National Cycling Route No. 1) in 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“…
