What Cyclists Welcome means for you


The purpose of Cyclist Welcome! certification of tourist services is to modify as many tourist establishments and destinations to the needs of cyclists and with that, support cycling transportation and tourism in Slovakia. For an average cyclist and cycling tourist it represents a growing number of accommodations, food serving establishments and tourist destinations with basic conditions for safe and trouble free visit with a bicycle or even with luggage. 
What does it mean in practice?
Probably the most important thing when visiting a certified establishment is that you can store your bicycle without risking damage or theft. Depending on the category of the establishment and on spatial resources, it can be a separate locked room, locked boxes, special place in the lobby etc., and if nothing else, it is at least a place where you can secure your bicycle yourself with your own lock and keep an eye on it. 
A very important criteria is also providing cycling information, e.g. where are the cycling routes in the area, where are bicycle services located, what are their opening hours, train timetables, whether they allow bicycles or not, and other important information. In the certified establishments you will also find (based on the category) necessary equipment, such as tools for minor repairs or a first aid kit and they will also offer useful services – the possibility to lock your bicycle, washing and drying of your equipment, luggage delivery, lunch boxes and others. The certified establishments will have food and drinks suitable for cyclists and special zones in camps for visitors without cars.
