Romania wants to lure more tourists with cycling routes

CiclismRomanian could soon have cycling routes, similarly to Western European countries such as Germany and Austria. Officials in Romania’s Ministry of Economy, which also coordinates the National Authority for Tourism, believe that cycling routes would attract more tourists to the country, says Romania-Insider.com.

There are many sources of funding for creating bicycle routes, including non-reimbursable funds, according to the Ministry, reports local News.ro. However, funds can’t be accessed because there isn’t yet legislative support for standards, methodology, design, implementation and approval for this type of tourist routes.

The ministry is working on legislation which would also set fines of up to RON 20,000 (some EUR 4,500) if, for example, County Councils fail to organize county commissions for cycling routes. These commissions would be in charge of giving the OK for the development of new routes, and for changing or closing the existing ones.
