For Dads and Kidds eBike Tour 

This tour includes a 2 day memorable adventure for the father and his children with a night spent in camping beneath the stars.

You do not have to worry about the route as it’s designed for children in mind as we have experience working with them both in winter and summer. The level of difficulty will be adapted to the strength and endurance of your children.

Itinerary

Day 1

Early in the morning, or if possible even the night before, we will prepare the electric bikes according to the weight and height of each of you. Before leaving you will receive the last indications about the route and the agenda of the day: lunch break, intersections and the camping point. The route will be specially adjusted for you and your child to enjoy the adventure. Believe us, adventure will be on the menu. The forest roads will not bore you too much as we all prefer the wild trails.

Over night

At the campsite you will be greeted by an assistant who already prepared the fire and the camp. Dinner will be ready and we’ll just warm it up together. We hope to have clear skies in the evening so we can do a short skywatching lesson with binoculars or a telescope.

Day 2

In the cool morning, maybe by a river, we will have breakfast, we will prepare the bikes and we will start the second day of mountain biking. For the MTB route we will have two options of low and medium difficulty. The previous day will be the landmark for choosing the day’s route. In the middle of the day we will have lunch and rehydrate for the final descent. The end point of the tour will be back to civilization, but we assure you not for long.

Marius Stratila

Mountain Guide & MIAS Mountain Bike Leader

Enduro biking and splitboarding are part of me, they define who I am. For me, they are more than just a way to escape crowded and overused resorts. They are a way to push limits and get out of the comfort zone, a way to explore and to discover.

That perfect mix of silence and grandeur that only a mountain can offer, the freedom to climb on your own, to define your route and follow it, the power to use your body strength to move forward and to enjoy downhill rides and fresh turns, no matter what season is out there – this is what defines me and what I want to share. The path is the same, only the texture is different.

What our happy adventurers have been saying about our tours

Ben Marciano on google6 months ago

(Translated by Google) A bomb of a place! Highly recommended for people who want to see the scenery and nature through the bike. Fun, professional, reliable and cheap. You can choose easy or complex routes and everything is courtesy and pleasant atmosphere. Thanks to Marius the guide who took care of us riding and was with us throughout!

Aroul Rosario on google8 months ago

Firstly .. I haven’t had any physical exercise in a year and I decided to do this suicidal adventure sport all of a sudden. Initially I felt bad and I thought I made a bad choice, but my guide understood my health and my physical conditions and made sure I was fine every five minutes. Also .. he didn’t give me the easiest route , he made sure it was tough and worthwhile my time.. a big thumbs up !!!!

Manuel Nothacker on google8 months ago

I had a fantastic time riding with Marius, it was exactly the experience i was looking for. We were riding very nice single trails all day in the fantastic environment of Postăvarul massif. Marius was a great, helpful guide, not only on the ride but he helped me with a ton of other information for my travels in Romania and Bulgaria. Also the bikes are high-end, much better than I expected. Highly recommended!
