Hi, this is Marius,

I can't understand Lihuanian language unfortunately. So please, if somebody can help me in English, thanks :)

Me and my friend are planning a bike travel along the coast starting in Klaipèda to Riga. This is just one idea, if there is recommendations for such travels in Baltic region, please let me know.
We will bring road bikes but we don't expect paved roads only: is there a good way along the sea or too much sand on the paths? Some camping places would be nice on the way. We will bring a tent and gaz cooker.

The travel should be doable in 7-10 days cycling (around 80km / day). We will arrive by train in Kaunas from Poland (i guess we can bring bikes in the train).
How is the transport to Klaipèda? On the map it looks like there is a big road connecting both cities. Is it possible to transport bikes with us in the bus? Can we take the bikes in a train from Kaunas to Riga? Is there any cycling map available?
Questions, question...

Thanks for anwering!

Along Baltic Sea coast goes European bike road, number 10. Especialy nice to ride to Curonian spit from Klaipėda to Nida, All the way it's asphalt, sometimes better, sometimes not. along way there are information signs about surrounding nature, most impressive dunes, views etc. As far as i know this bike road goes from Klaipėda to Latvia, but so far never was on that side. More info about this route can be found here http://www.bicycle.lt/seasideroute/. At this link you can download PDF documents with more detailed descriptions. Or these PDF in printed form can be found in Klaipėda Tourism information center.

You can travel by bus from Kaunas to Klaipėda and it costs around 50 Lt for person. As alternative you can travel to Nida in Curonian spit by ship(more info here) and travel from there by bike to Klaipėda. Of course this will be more expensive (99 Lt per person), but views from ship I think will be worth much more. Unfortunately I don't know whether bikes can be carried on this ship.

Hope this information helps :)

Well, the only thing I could recommend for you, is skip the main roadways, it's too dangerous for bicycles, due to lots of trucks.

I wonder to know what country are you from? Because your name looks like a lithuanian... And good luck in your adventure ;)
Sorry for offtopic.
