You're not traveling anywhere without your bicycle? You do not travel if it is not on the bike? Although the ride over the bridge is exciting enough itself, on Krk, cycling enthusiasts can enjoy the paths that connect the entire island.
With bicycle to Krk
Are you determined to bring your bike to Krk? Whether you are coming by bike or by car, you can either cross over the Krk bridge or board a ferry from Cres or Rab. The sight of the bridge itself is unforgettable, but there is something special about when a bike is boarded on a boat. "Hopping" on Croatian islands becomes more and more popular among cyclists, and many accept the challenge of the so-called island route by bike from the south to Rijeka where Krk is unavoidable destination. This challenge would only be recommended to the most experienced bikers because it lasts over a week and covers hundreds of miles of driving!
Bicycle on Krk
Krk is completely covered by bicycle paths, so the popular Bikemap site offers up to 273 different routes on Krk, which have created cycling enthusiasts for themselves. You may just create your own path by which other people will follow your tracks.
Although there are official, marked cycling trails, bikers are welcome on asphalted and dirt roads for those who prefer driving off the road. Just be careful! At the end of the road there is always the sea. If this happens, take advantage of the refreshment opportunity and continue driving when the temperature falls - the advice of a professional cyclist! :)
What if my bike was left at home?
You can easily rent a bike from one of the many renters on the island, use the bicycle offered by your holiday home on Krk or if you are cheerful, try to borrow it from the person who decided to skip that day!
