“Bicycle routes in Vilnius”.  The official  map for city guests (2020)

for information on Easy Leisure Cycling Routes – the easy routes for everyone – on this page:

velovilnius.lt/vilnius-bikemap/city

Here an overview of the planned routes on the Map:

 

Is Vilnius a Cycling city?
Definitively not. But it could be worse.

On the one hand,  there is no consistent bicycle infrastructure or signing. Bikes paths still “end nowhere” or are made of two white lines, which pedestrians like to ignore …

On the other hand, Vilnius is very green city with plenty of forest and lakes around the city and even large Green areas close to the center (Vingis and Belmontas parks). In Summer time and out of the rush hours traffic is low compared to bigger cities in Europe.

So, despite of the sometimes lacking cycling infrastructure cycling is really fun in Vilnius.

In 2020 a free paper map version of the routes on the map above shall be published.

Here’s an online version of the map / google map  (choose the layers of the map to see the information separately) :
 
  • More easy leisure cycling routes for everyone (eg. with family, for sightseeing, how to get to the lakes etc.)

Trakai Bike Map

(both the ways from Vilnius to Trakai as routes around Trakai)

There is now separate page for this (including maps, pictures and gps tracks)

http://velovilnius.lt/vilnius-bikemap/trakai

 

Trakai

Trakai is surely one of the highlights in Lithuania: A Medieval castle on an island within lakes, an Old village with wooden houses an very special traditions and food. A very special target not far from Vilnius is the Medieval water castle and former capital of Trakai.
