Carpathia Bike Tour is the first cycling event that highlights the unique biodiversity of the Făgăraș Mountains and the Transylvanian Highlands, along with the cultural and historical values of the local communities. The Cobor edition of the event offers cycling enthusiasts a unique experience in an old Transylvanian village, where the Carpathia Conservation Foundation has developed a model of sustainable agriculture, friendly to nature, bringing back in 2018 the Hungarian grey cattle, a species of historic cattle, almost extinct in Transylvania and the local area. The Hungarian grey cattle had a tradition in the peasant households from Transylvania, being illustrated in the series of paintings “The ox cart” by Nicolae Grigorescu.
