Good to know! In the forests, there can be sandy or muddy (in case of wet weather) roads. When using streets/roads, road traffic regulations must be observed. No services are available from Priedaine to Lāčupe. When on a road for pedestrians and cyclists, you have to stay in the lane meant for pedestrians. Be careful when crossing the bicycle lane.

Alternatives: Riga public transport runs from Liepezers, Kleisti and Lāčupe Cemetery (timetables: https://saraksti.rigassatiksme.lv/index.html). You can cover the distance from Bulduri and Priedaine to Riga by train (www.1188.lv). Next to the Līvu akvaparks water park, there is a bicycle rental from which you can reach Riga by using the bicycle lane (~ 16 km).
