Bicycle Lanes

You will find Szeged very cyclist friendly - Its pavements have dedicated cycle lanes, dedicated footpaths and a mixture of both.

Szeged Bicycle Lanes

Beep Beep! Make sure you're on the correct path or bicycle lane.


Bicycle Hire

Szeged also has a bicycle hire scheme like in London (UK), which is great for sightseeing and exercise purposes.

Szeged Bicycle Hire

Bicycle hire is 200 HUF per hour or 1800 HUF per day.


Bicycle Shop

There are many bicycle shops in and around Szeged city centre, but I prefer to use Laci Bike.

Laci Bicycle Shop

The independent owner is very polite, with affordable products and services, and can usually fix small-medium bicycle problems within 30 Minutes.


Road Signs

This road sign means you are entering the village Újszentiván.

Zebra Crossings

Zebra Crossings in Hungary can be on their own or combined with a cycle lane (usually on their left side).

Zebra Crossing

Always press the button and wait. If there is no cycle lane and no cycle light on the zebra crossing, you must walk your bicycle across as a pedestrian.




Szeged Leisure - Long Distance Cycling

Cycling In And Around Szeged City And The Countryside

This web page has been created primarily for those who like to cycle long distances, who want to explore and enjoy Szeged's outer-city routes and countryside towns and villages. And for those who just like the piece and quiet of the countryside lanes; perhaps stopping off for a bite to eat and a beer or two!

Cycling Around Szeged - COUNTRYSIDE TOWNS & VILLAGES

One of the best things about Szeged, in terms of its cycling, is its vast amount of cycling lanes; located on pavements, away from the traffic. Not only are these cycle lanes in cities, towns and villages, they are also on the side of E-roads (like A and B roads in the UK) whereby they allow you to connect (travel) from one city, town or village to the next without the fear of being hit by traffic. Szeged really is a bicycle-friendly place to live.

Watch Out!.....Pothole!

Although Szeged is great for cycling, you need to watch out for potholes in the pavements; especially those outside of the city, as many pavements are worn out whereby they have uneven/pot-holed areas that can easily damage your bicycle and you! So make sure your bicycle has thick mountain bike wheels, and ALWAYS CARRY A REPAIR KIT as there are not many bicyle shops between towns and villages.

Many of the potholed pathways tend to be around the housing estates and poorer areas, simply because they are used more by the cyclists and people living there, with the public footpaths and pathways (main streets) being okay.

Potholes Szeged

Warning! Potholes outside the city can seriously damage your bicycle and bones!

Szeged Riverside - Cycling Routes

In the summer, and winter too but not as often, you will find many people cycling alongside the river bank's many pathways that stretch for miles; into towns and villages such as Tiszasziget WebsiteTiszasziget, Térvár, Újszentiván WebsiteÚjszentiván, Szőreg WebsiteSzeged-Szőreg, Kübekháza WebsiteKübekháza and Szeged Tápé. Long distance cyclists have at least 15 miles of pathway to use while enjoying the beautiful countryside. The start of many of these pathways are only ten minutes away from the downtown bridge (Belvárosi Híd).

Riverside Pathways

This is a great place for clearing your mind, exercising and enjoying the freedom of life.

Cycling Around Szeged - ROUTES & TIMINGS

Below I have listed some cycling routes you can take from Belvárosi Híd (Downtown Bridge), one-way; so just double the time if coming back the same route. Some routes are short-ish while other are long distance. Where two times are given, the first is a fast speed (usually on a Mountain Bicycle) and the second is a standard/leisurely speed (usually on a Folding Bicylcle or Budapesti Bicycle).
