Alūksne - Stāmariena - Gulbene 68km (Tour de LatEst)


More experienced cyclists can try competing the narrow-gauge train called Mazbānītis, which completes the way from Alūksne to Gulbene in a little less than an hour and a half. It is a difficult task though. Yet for not that experienced cyclists, Mazbānītis, which runs along the same way as the bicycle route, offers an opportunity to load the bicycle on the train and do a part of the ride without a strain. The road here is not easy: hilly and mostly gravel road, the most difficult part here is between Ate windmill and Stāmeriena. Tourist services are available in Alūksne and Gulbene, but in the countryside only the basic services are offered.

The cycling route by “Tour de LatEst”.
