Collection of international, national, regional and local bicycle routes in Baltic States Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and their neighborhood (Poland, Russia, Finland). The www.BaltiCCycle.eu routes are orientated to "cycleability now": They avoid most crowded roads as well as bad quality surface roads. Thus both - gravel roads and small parts of cycling along heavy traffic routes - stay inevitable and just can be minimalised. Opposite to the National routes the long-distance BaltiCCycle.eu routes connect main points of interest and do not stop at the national border. The routes are a temporary network until the national and international signing of all routes will be implemented (at the moment only Lithuanian coast and Estonia).
a) long-distance www.BaltiCCycle.eu routes are build by relations. There are cross-country or international.
