(*) On this road you’ll see a traffic sign in front of a tunnel, indicating that cyclists are not allowed to enter. However, the local police has no problem with cyclists passing through the tunnels, so it’s okay to ride through it. We do advise you to turn on your light(s) at this point, because tunnels are not always well lit.
