American bike travelers rolling through Budapest this weekend
Posted May 13th, 2013 - 7:41 am by from Pittsburgh, United States (Permalink)
Hey gang,

We are a couple American bicyclists who are currently in the middle of a big ride all the way from Singapore, through China, central Asia, Turkey, and making our way into Europe. We are currently in Belgrade, and about to start biking up along the Danube River to Budapest. We hope to arrive there by this weekend (Friday May 17) and would like to spend a couple days exploring and hanging out in this cool city

We are trying to send out individual couch requests, but with limited internet time, it is tough, so figured we would try this method as well. If anybody can host us and/or show us some fun and interesting things for the weekend, that would be greatly appreciated. We like good live music, local food, drink, and culture, and anything else different and exciting going on around Budapest.

Thanks and hopefully see y'all soon,
Steve & Aaron

Hey Fred, thanks for the message.

Unfortunately, I don't think we have time to do the Lake detour, though it sounds like fun. We have to be in Prague by June 1st, and would like to enjoy the river trail, along with Bratislavea and Vienna.

And usually when we are in cities for a couple days, we like to rest and take a break from biking, but if you would like to join us for some riding along the Danube towards Bratislava, that would be great.

We are in Baja in south Hungary now and should be getting to Budapest on Friday or so, planning on staying for a couple nights. Do you or anybody else have any recommendations for good bike routes before or after Budapest (we are mainly following the Danube River bike route EuroVelo 6), and also good places to camp and towns/sights to see?

If anybody can help us out with a place to stay, or show us around Budapest, please contact us at 06 70 242 4132

Thanks and hopefully see y'all soon,
Steve & Aaron
