The ride starts in the tourist town of Kruje which is visited by most of the visitors in Albania. Even for locals it’s a popular destination with the old bazaar, traditional restaurants and the hike on the mountain of Kruja that stands almost vertical behind the town.
This ride starts in the old town and after a few minutes asphalt the road turns into the dirt at Dane village and it continues like that next on the bottom of the rock face of Mt. Kruja. In the village of Barkashesh the road ends for hitting it again by the river at the query. About 15 min bike pushing is needed, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. I was in clipless shoes and it wasn’t very comfortable for this part. 🙂
