Exciting tours and destinations

For mountain bike, tour- of racing bike

Challenging bike rides

Mountain bikes are available for rent at Village Retreat. The area is particularly suitable for cross-country through the surrounding valleys. There are also many great destinations that are considerably closer by bicycle than by car.

Beautiful scenery, great destinations

There are countless country roads through the woods and along the fields. There is a beautiful route through the nature reserve to the beautiful village of Hollókö in the west and through the forests in the north to the town of Széchény. To the southeast you drive through the ruins of the Samson castle to the Buddhist stupa, and in the east you can go through the forest to the monastery of Szentküt. One drawback: when it has rained, some trails are very difficult.

Stops to eat or drink

Given the space and tranquility of the region it’s quite extraordinary how many restaurants and inns you can reach by bike from Bedepuszta Village Retreat. No matter in what direction you go, there’s always a nice destination with good opportunities to drink or eat something.

With the racing bike

The area around Bedepuszta is a good challenge for trained cyclists. A tour of Mátra is easy to do from Bedepuszta. The roads are quiet and the landscape is beautiful and diverse.

About asphalt roads

Maybe the Mátra is a bit too much for cyclists with a less sporty approach. Some of the slopes around Bedepuszta, especially the one to the Bede Valley, are challenging enough for a regular cyclist. There are several great destinations for those who want to stay on the hard roads. For example, the Buddhist stupa at 121km, or the monastery of Szentkút, 18 km from Bedepuszta.

Mountain bike trails

For experienced mountain bikers there are trails on the Karanc and the Medves, mountains 20 km north of Bedepuszta.
