Pärnu – Kaubasadama Road – Elu Road II – Valgeranna – Liu – Kõpu – Kõima – Audru – Pärnu
This route offers a good opportunity to get acquainted with the beautiful coastal areas of Pärnu Bay. When driving by the sea, you will first reach Valgerand, which has an observation tower, a children's playground and an adventure park.
The section of the route from Valgerand to Kõpu offers great sea views, lots of resting spots and accommodation opportunities on the coast, several bird-watching towers, harbours and the nearly 2000-hectare Audru polder on the coast, which is an internationally important bird area.
The route follows the seashore until the village of Kavaru. The section of the route from the gate of the Valgerand campsite to the Kõpu crossroads on the Tõstamaa highway is 24 km long.At first the trail is covered by asphalt, followed by an uneven gravel road that usually becomes stepped in the summer months. Fortunately, the road has gradually been covered with a dust-free pavement and there is already a nice narrow paved road between the coastal villages. A 6.2 km gravel road leads from Liu via Kavaru to Tõstamaa highway.
The Pootsi-Kõpu Holy Trinity Apostolic Orthodox Church is an impressive baroque church made out of rubble with impressive domes. In Kõpu you will ride 400 m in the direction of Pärnu and then head for forest paths. As this section of the route has a lot of twists and turn-offs, navigation is quite difficult and a good signage system is important. The distance from Kõpu to Päraküla is 7.2 km, of which 3.3 km is a gravel road and 3.9 km is a low-paved forest path. The paved section starts on Päraküla Road and lasts until Kõima crossroad. You will also continue on asphalt on Tõstamaa Road until Audru. A nice cycling path will lead you from Audru to Pärnu.
The route is suitable for family trips, offers interesting additional opportunities for foreign tourists visiting Estonia or can be used as a training track for recreational athletes. The route is accessible with any kind of bike.
The length of the route is 46 km; gravel roads make up about 13 km and forest roads 4 km.
It's best to start the trip from Pärnu, but why not from some accommodation facility that is on the route.
