Road cylists can select one of five well marked routes across the central part of the island, while the ones that are looking for a bit more demanding exercise, will cycle to Stara Baska or Baska - both roads offer several longer and steeper slopes.
For family cycling we advise arranged asphalted cycling route between towns Krk and Punat. This is actually part of larger path towards Malinska, but it's well marked and divided from the mail road. Second option would be from town Krk to Prniba peninsula on the eastern side of the town that offers beautiful nature, bathing opportunities and nice view across town Punat from the sea side.
