Bicycling in Bulgaria (or Greece, Turkey, Romania)?

Jump to last reply

Please help, somebody out there.....
This summer, I want to got to a warm, dry, not too mountaineous, not too expensive and not too touristy place with my trusty 18-speed touring bike. I shal try (as far as possible) to stay at clean hotels and eat interesting food.
Worse, I want to go somewhere new, so France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Hungary are out.
Does anybody know if Bulgaria would be a good choice? Or the North-east part of the greek mainland (east Macidonia and Trace) and/or European Turkey - and/or the south-west of Romania? I have tons of guidebooks, but they mostly describe touristy areas, their information on road conditions is very scanty, and if the area doesn't have something like half the Alps in it, they just by-pass it, saying it's boring. I definitely don't like going down steep roads, and the towns don't need Notre Dame, the Tower of London and the Acropolis rolled together to please me; just a good mood, calm and a nice place to stay and eat.
Any suggestions?
By the way, anybody want info on Denmark or the other countries mentioned above?
Thanks for reading this - and even more for answering.
Jens
