What´s more, cyclists have to respect the so called Green Code (rules and general instructions for the area of the National Park Low Tatras and all bike tracks). Downhill lowers like the diversity of the terrain and new challenges. That´s why there are a lot of new attractions and offers that we have prepared for them. They can test the beauty of this sport and the natural character of the terrain with wooden obstacles at the first extreme downhill already and then during the whole summer season. There will be also easier tracks available after 28th June. The first extreme downhill will have a special price – 12 Euro for adults,“ said Matej Hulej, director of Tatry Motion shops and services.
