    Mountain biking and trails in Crimea

    Hi there! I'm Dmitry, the gide from Our page is in russian, but it's easy to look the tracks and videos and pictures.

    We propose tours in Crimea! We do it more than 4 years. So, you are welcome!

    Look at the maps on

    We live in a comfortable hotel in the center of Alushta (double occupancy twin bedrooms). Single room is available upon request for additional charge. The price includes breakfast and dinner. The hotel has a garage, where bikes can be kept. We provide all the necessary tools for repair and maintenance of bicycle: bike workstand, brake bleeding kits, all keys and cassette removers, sealant for tubeless tires. Bike wash and a washing machine for clothes are available as well. For an additional fee, you can use the hotel sauna.

    We are located in Alushta, where there are some of the highest peaks of the Crimea: Hangar Burun - 1450 m, Eklizi Burun - 1527 m, North Demerdji - 1359 m. While riding mainly on the slopes of Demerdzhi and Babugan, once or twice a week we can go to Ai Petri (near Yalta). In case of bad weather the group is going to Balaklava Ė it is almost always sunny (minibus transfer is provided).

    There is a developed system of the lower trails in Alushta that starts at altitudes up to 1000 m high. Trails are very diverse, mostly built by cyclists for cyclists and there are really plenty of them: fast and slow, up and down, with lots of switchbacks, steep descends and demanding traverse sections. In other words routes can be very long and intense. Daily routes consists of different trails interconnected in a such a way to let riders enjoy up to 20 km of technical riding with up to 1000 m of descent down to the seashore. This is the most popular way of mountain riding in Alushta and it is possible to make up to 4 of these type of routes per day.

    There are also trails higher up to 1500 m on Chatyr-Dag, Demerdzhi, Karaby plateau with elevations up to 1500 m and total ascent about 700 m and more. These high-mountain trails are more rocky, more technically demanding, though cyclists use them less than the lower ones. But itís compensated with beautiful scenery and breathtaking views. Best photos and vivid emotions are there as well.
