The fourth edition of TBT Race took place on 19 August 2017, starting and finishing in Saschiz, on two routes (the long distance – 80 km and the short distantce – 40 km, for the beginners).
Transilvania Bike Trails Race (TBT Race) is a mountain-bike race that takes place every year, starting and finishing in each of the eight interconnected Saxon villages. The aim of the race is to promote the 100 km mountain bike trails and these natural, cultural, and historical landscapes unique in Europe.
The route passed through areas designated as bike trail network, grassy hills , forest roads, streets of old villages and the fortified churches’ courts.
The unspoiled beauty of the area needed to be promoted at the national and international level, therefore starting with 2011 we have built the first 100 KM mountain-bike trails in Romania, to have a base for the sustainable tourism in the area. The project was supported by a grant from Switzerland through the Swiss Contribution to the enlarged European Union.
This network of mountain-bike trails links together eight saxon villages (Viscri – Bunești – Criț – Meșendorf – Cloașterf – Saschiz – Archita – Daia), with their beautiful landscapes and fortified churches in our region, and the most important touristic attraction, the medieval city of Sighișoara.
