Cycling and mountain bikes

For the lovers of cycling Padina Fest organizez the 3rd edition of Bucegi Marathon, a typical mountain bike cross country in a spectacular environment on an altitude of 2000 meters. However the fun does not stop here! For amateurs we recommend the Directia Omu running trail, a mountain runing race where the participants must reach the highest point of the Bucegi Mountain, the Omu peak then return to the site of the festival.
