Relatively easy
The tour requires moderate effort, but is not too difficult for average cyclists with relatively good physical condition. It is suitable for cyclists with some experience, the track is asphalted or a well maintained forest road. It can exhibit some short steeper sections.

The tour requires moderate training since it is either long or exhibits several steeper section. The altitude difference ranges between 700 - 1,000 m.
