Cycling in the outskirts of Kyiv showed us a side of Ukraine’s life we would not have seen otherwise.

Get on your bike and pedal away.

Ukraine is definitely a great place for travelers, interested in cycling adventures. The vast territory itself offers plenty of small countryside roads to take up. Diversity of landscape, scattered rivers and lakes, quiet cozy villages are a wonderful backdrop to your cycling journey. Most cyclists head direct to Carpathian Mountains, where there are already some marked trails – from road cycling to off track mountain biking. While bigger cities aren’t particularly bike friendly, the number of biking lanes steadily increases from year to year. Both Kyiv, Lviv and Odesa have a lot of city areas, suitable for cycling, not too far from the city center. For more tips – check out our cycling guide below!
