This famous railway bridge was built in 1894 and served until 2000. One of the most ancient temples of wooden architecture of the 17th century – the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary – was preserved in Vorokhta. It was built in 1615, when Vorokhta was still a village of the village of Mikulichin, and among other Hutsul temples of the same type, it is distinguished by the most perfect proportions and harmonious forms.

Frequently asked questions - For radial tours

What do you need to do to get into the group?
You can find the registration procedure for participants in the “Participation Details”.

How to get to the Veloride base?
By train to Ivano-Frankivsk. Take a shuttle bus to Bukovel, Vorokhta or Yasinya right by the train station. Ask the bus driver to stop in Mykulychyn near the church. Walk further 100 meters to the bike rental sign.

How to avoid significant delays in cycling?
Call your instructor and arrange your arrival the day before the bike tour.

How many people are already in the group, what is the composition and age of the participants?
The bike ride will happen anyway! No need to worry about it. When the decision is made, submit an application, prepare things and buy tickets. The exact number of participants is usually made known a few days before the start of the tour, so we will find out a little earlier than you. As for the composition and age of the participants, the group is selected completely spontaneously, so it is never known in advance who will be your partner in the team. I can assure you only one thing: such active tours attract only interesting and extraordinary people, so you will definitely meet like-minded people there. After all, such attracts the like.

What is the procedure for payment for participation?
Payment for the tour is paid upon arrival at the starting point of the route p. Mykulychyn. To reserve a place on the tour, you submit an application to participate in the tour, if you have available seats you will receive an answer, after which you will need to make an advance payment.

Is it difficult or easy to hike?
“I have no experience – will I manage?” Everything is relative. The Carpathians is a mountainous area. It will be easy (on the slopes) and difficult (on the ascents). And that is the whole point of active rest: the body is well-trained and wellness, while all the unnecessary flying out of your head, and your mind and mind are perfectly rested and restored. As for the last question … Yes, you can handle it provided that you make such a decision in advance. Otherwise it cannot be – this rule works in any sphere of our life. Cycling is designed for ordinary people, that is, you do not need to be an athlete in order to go cycling. Every day the level of the route will be gradually complicated, the sixth and seventh day will be routes for experienced cyclists. If you like to pedal all day looking into the asphalt, this tour is not for you.

How is the nutrition of participants resolved?
We have home-made Ukrainian cuisine, breakfasts and dinners based on natural products. When we’re on the go, lunch will consist of fresh sandwiches. Homemade food served on our base is prepared in the best traditions of Carpathian cuisine, which has long been famous for its excellent taste, variety of traditional dishes of natural products, and also known for its large portions. Excellent recuperation after active rest. For breakfast, you can make pancakes with cheese, scrambled eggs, various salads, and at lunch, make sandwiches made with us at home. Dinner also consists of home-cooked meals. On the menu we have all garnishes, dumplings, mushroom soup, pancakes, banush, borscht, fried potatoes, mashed potatoes, salads. On your way through the settlements, if you wish, you can visit the Hutsul restaurant and enjoy the flavor and service, national cuisine. But this will not be included in the cost of the tour – we provide you with food on the base and on the way. Breakfasts and dinners at the base and sandwiches on the go are included in the cost of the bike ride! There is always the possibility of adjusting, for example, for vegetarians.

What roads will we take?
We will be moving on asphalt as well as dirt roads and forest paths. The Carpathian Mountains are a mountainous area, so you often have to climb up and, accordingly, descend carefully. In some areas you even have to walk and push your bike, climbing stone stairs to the next summit, which offers breathtaking views.
We will follow the roads along the edge of the road, without interfering with motor transport, and accordingly it will not interfere with us.

Will there be electricity at the place of residence?
The estates have electricity, 220 volts.

Will there be WI-FI at the place of residence?
There is WI-FI at the place of residence but the coverage area does not cover the whole area and possible interruptions to the Internet.

Will there be a mobile connection on the route?
Mobile communication is stable on the base. There may be interruptions along the route. In the Carpathian Mountains, a more stable connection is established at the tops, but in the lowlands it may not be at all. All Ukrainian GSM operators provide roaming in Ukraine. As a rule, cellular operators have several partners. Which of them is better to connect to is better to ask before leaving your office. At the same time, find out if you have international roaming service included. Alternatively, you can buy a seven-card from any Ukrainian mobile carrier in the Carpathians.

What are some things to take with you?
The list of personal belongings is on the Details page of participation in the list of necessary personal belongings.

What currency to bring?
The national currency of Ukraine is the hryvnia. But take the one you have: rubles (RUR), dollars (USD) or euros (EUR). The exchangers are near the train station in Ivano-Frankivsk, but they open after 9:00. In the Carpathians, it will also be possible to exchange currency in Yaremche, Vorokhta or Bukovel, but only on weekdays, all banks are closed on weekends. According to the laws of Ukraine, a passport must be provided when exchanging currencies.

What weather is expected in the Carpathians during the cycling trip?
The climate in the Carpathians is quite variable. In the morning, the sun may shine, rain will fall in the afternoon, and by the evening the sun will come out again from the clouds, so you should bring your clothes in case of heat and cold. Fluctuations in temperature are also very sharp, daytime can reach 25 heat, and in the night it drops to +10. We choose clothes on the day of the trip, in any case we bring with us light raincoats.

What to do in case of rain?
There are many options – depending on the situation. If we haven’t left the base, we can either wait for the rain to end or leave for the raincoats. In case of severe weather, at the request of the group, we stay at the base and choose what to do (roast kebabs under cover or something else). If we are already on the road, we find shelter, and when the rain is not heavy, then we continue our journey in the rain or shorten the route and return.

The instructor does not control the weather, does not depend on it, whether it will rain, whether it is hot or cold, so let’s not spoil his mood.

What are the prices for food, souvenirs, etc., how much money to bring?
It is better to take more money than you expect to spend – you can always bring the excess back. I will voice here the opinion of the famous traveler Y. Senkevich. Asked to give advice to those going on a trip, he said, “Take half as much stuff and twice as much money …”

Can I come with my bike?
Of course, you can come with your bike and gear. The cost of the tour will be cheaper.

Which bike can you get on?
1. The bike should be designed for off-road riding (mountain bike, mountain bike, MTB).
2. The bicycle must be functional; the technical condition of all parts should not be doubted, and it is advisable to replace the doubtful ones with new ones, or to bring with them. (The nearest bike shop is 70 km away).

Do not take a bicycle (bicycle bag), as the bicycle often has to be lifted or carried, and it is not convenient with the wheel. It is better to take a small backpack for sweaters, jackets and sandwiches.

It is advisable not to take contact pedals – as practice has shown, it is dangerous to health. Unless you have a lot of experience with pedals.

How to transport a bicycle by train? Collect it in Ivano-Frankivsk?
Bikes are driven in a cover.

Is it possible to get from Ivano-Frankivsk to Mykulychyn by bus with bicycle?
Yes, maybe. People come to us often by bicycle bus. But you need to approach the driver and agree how you will carry the bike in the trunk – whether disassembled or otherwise. Often people arrive on Friday: they leave by Ivano-Frankivsk by bicycle or Lviv by passenger train Lviv-Rakhiv, arriving to us on Friday at 21.30.

How is bicycle protection organized along the route?
Most of the route does not need to park your bike somehow. In the case of excursions in crowded places, bicycles are left to the instructor or usually to the guards at the entrance. Bicycles are stored in turnkey bicycles at the base.

What is a hut?
It is a wooden shepherds’ house built by locals in the mountains and is a great hiding place for tourists. Even so-called roadside restaurants where there is open fire. Hospitality in the Carpathians is unlimited, especially in the mountains you will always be greeted by local shepherds and residents of Hutsul region!

At what age can you go cycling? Are there discounts for children?
Participants must be 14 years old. No discounts.

Do I need to borrow any extra money?
You can count on 100-200 UAH. a day for your personal needs, because most of all you will want to buy yourself juice, water or some souvenir on the way. Only the entrance ticket for sightseeing tours is paid separately.

What is the health care of the campaign?
The instructor has a standard first aid kit. But everyone is required to have their first aid kit with an individual set of medicines.
If the tour participants are removed from the route as a result of an injury caused by failure to comply with the rules of behavior on the bicycle, or refusal of their own accord, the tour will not be refunded.

Who is Hutsuli?
Hutsuli is an ethnographic group of Ukrainians living in the Carpathians, descendants of the most ancient tribe of chronicle streets.

What is a radial route?
The radial route is a travel route during which a tourist is on a tourist base, implementing a program of hikes and excursions from one tourist center. The radial route begins and ends at the same geographical location. Located in it, the tourist travels to other destinations, returning to the same place.

There will be very steep climbs, do you want to ride rather than bike sideways?
Routes are roads where 99% of the way can be traveled without getting off the bike. On the sixth and seventh day you will have to walk on the hills often.
