    Better late than never: It can get blimmin' hot in Hungary / Romania etc...during the summer months. It was low to mid thirties every day during our trip, and when kitted up, that's not pleasant. Don't let that stop you going BUT, you will get hot and therefore you will dehydrate. It creeps up on you so prevention is better than cure. When you refuel, buy some water too to keep on your bike. Before you go, buy some Hydration tablets like: SIS Go Hydro. (All good supermarkets stock them). Pop one into a litre of water and you're set.

    I'm the first to admit that I'm not used to riding in such temperatures but doing this definitely kept me safe and well.

    Ride safe

    I used a camel back full of water and strapped on the pillion seat for refreshments on the move

    Really enjoyed this RR thanks! We've been down to Transylvania 3 times now and each time stayed with an English couple who live in a little Saxon village about 20 minutes from Sibiu. They offer a full package for the area, trips out accommodation etc with gourmet food provided for not a lot of money and also have apartments in Sibiu for rent. Sibiu makes a great base and it's ridiculously cheap by our standards.

    Checkout http://www.secrettransylvania.co.uk I can heartily recommend them for accommodation or a full family holiday (Its a great place for kids!).

    Enjoyed your RR.
    I hope to visit Romania this summer as I didn't manage it last year.

    I tend to just stop when I'm ready and then find somewhere to stay.
    Did you pre-book all your hotels?

    Yes, I prebook all accommodation. I like to know where I'm going to end up each evening and as I usually have a group of between five and seven guys, it's easier to find suitable hotels in advance.
