On two wheels

Cyclotourism is one of the most extensive branches of tourism in the Bjelovar-Bilogora County. The hilly landscape of the Bilogora region allows all cyclists to find the ideal route for themselves, from those who like an easy ride with a beautiful view of nature, to those who are eager for more demanding climbs.

For this reason, the County has developed an application called Bjelovarsko Bilogorska Bike Routes, which combines official cycling trails in one place and offers information on the length of the trail, ascent and surface, a pictorial representation, description and cross-section of the route and a number of other important information for all cyclists. The app is completely free and can be downloaded here.
