Not only do the cycling trails encourage the locals to enjoy active leisure activities and do sports, but also allow the city to successfully form part of the network of cycling routes EuroVelo 10 and EuroVelo 13 and the cyclists to continue cycling further through the region of Kurzeme.

The route EuroVelo 10 stretches along the coastline of the Baltic sea, allowing the cyclists to take in its natural and cultural resources. It runs along the untouched seashore and coastal areas, which, in some sections, have preserved their primeval character. With a variety of nature parks and reservations, cultural highlights and tourist destinations, this route is suitable for those who wish not only to take a trip that involves active leisure activities, but also enjoy a relaxing moment by the sea and observe the nature.

EuroVelo 13, also known as the route of “Iron Curtain”, perfectly reflects unique historical evidence and allows you to discover a number of military heritage and other sites over its entire length. In Latvia, the route with a total length of 562 km winds its way from Ventspils to the North, giving you the opportunity to visit 12 Liv villages and see the what is left of the former Soviet army town “Zvaigznīte” and the radio astronomy centre of Irbene.

The trip continues with the cycling route “Through the Liv Villages”, which passes through the historic Liv fishing villages and stretches along the “Big Sea” and Slītere National Park. This route starts in Mazirbe and runs through Košrags, Pitrags, Saunags and Vaide. This route with a total length of approximately 28 km can be finished in one day.

However, if you decide to go for a longer ride, in Košrags, this route branches off in another route – “Along the Big Sea and the Small Sea”, also known as the Circle of Slītere. Since it is a circular route, you can choose to go the opposite direction, which means that you can start the route in Košrags or Melnsils and finish it at any other site. This route with a total length of approximately 50 km can be finished in one day or you can choose to finish it in two days with overnight stay in tourist accommodations. This route gives the cyclists a perfect opportunity to appreciate the coastal nature and the Liv cultural heritage.

You are welcome to take a look at the cycling routes in Kurzeme, but if you are up for longer trips, the EuroVelo Map could come in handy.
